Shepparton High School students enjoyed an interactive exploration of pathways linked to future growth industries during the World of Work on Wheels Career Expo last week.

The Year 9 and 10 students took part in career activities showcasing NAO the humanoid robot, Samsung Gear VR glasses and a virtual expo of pathway information.

The focus industries of the expo were medical technology and pharmaceuticals, food and fibre, construction technology, transport and defence technology, new energy technology, international education and professional services.

The expo, run by the Career Education Association of Victoria, aims to raise student awareness of the education, training and employment pathways provided through Vocational Education Training.

The Victorian Department of Education and Training-sponsored touring bus has travelled to schools across the region.

Kyabram and Yarrawonga students also travelled to Shepparton to take part in the expo.
