Benjamin Parsonage and Infotech visits Senior Physics Classes.
On 15th April, Rod Hare a mentor for Infotech, a NZ Government sponsored organization tasked with the job of promoting Science, Engineering and Technology, visited the school with Ben Parsonage, a Glenfield College graduate. Ben completed his 5 years at Glenfield College in 2005 and went on to complete a Civil Engineering honours degree at Auckland University Ben is now working for Fletchers Construction as a project engineer. He is currently based on the Waterview construction site in West Auckland. He presented a series of slides, to both of the school’s year 12 Physics classes, on what his job entails. His slides were interesting and informative and challenged students to look at a Civil Engineering job as a good career path.
