EduKits was pleased to be invited to present a talk to members of the Wagga Rotary Club held at Wagga’s Mens Shed, which was announced Australian Men’s Shed of the Year in 2017. The shed provides a community meeting place and programs for men including woodwork, metalwork, bee-keeping, gardening and lead lighting, to name a few.
The Rotarians were particularly interested in Michael’s story – how he started an international e-commerce business while still attending high school in Wagga Wagga. He also talked about his success in receiving a scholarship to Space Camp USA, and the importance of using every opportunity that’s presented before you.
The Wagga Men’s Shed is hugely supported and valued by the community in regards to its values and the work it does. It would be fantastic to see a similar STEM makerspace become available for the younger members of our community to share knowledge and work with others while developing educational projects.
