Building connections at Astrofest 2023

AusSRC joined in the fun at Astrofest, WA’s biggest annual astronomy event on Saturday, 18th November 2023. 

We teamed up with SKAO to share our excitement about the SKA project with the local community. We spoke with people of all ages about the network of SKA Regional Centres – the SRCNet – assisted by a large world map with flashing LED lights to simulate data racing around the network.

Dev Null, Software Research Engineer at the AusSRC, spoke alongside Riley Keel and George Simpson (both of SKAO) about their individual career paths and future job opportunities available as part of the SKA project.
