Topic: Astronomers in the Making
Speaker: Tash McFadden, Brendan Reinhart and Roy Truelove, Macquarie University
Venue: Epping Creative Centre - 26 Stanley Road, Epping
Abstract:  
The inspiration behind future astronomers and their journey towards their dream careers. Each of us will discuss our reasoning behind taking our current degree and what we are hoping to pursue full time after uni life. I will also take a little about running the observatory at the uni. Brendan will take about the sorts of things we study in uni as well as the broad set of skills we learn. Roy will focus on why most students take and continue with astronomy.
