The Trade and Tech Fit is 100% hands-on, allowing students to design video games, lay bricks, weld, use a flight simulator, program a robot, safety test equipment, use power tools, learn to paint and more. It provides a safe and equitable space where students engage with tradies, apprentices and industry professionals, providing insight into the breadth of career pathways where female and gender diverse people are underrepresented.

Last year, more than 2,500 students from 119 schools attended the expo. After attending, 96% of surveyed students said it helped them understand careers in trades and technology.
