Dr Adrian Bertolini

For those of you who don’t know my background, I have degrees in Science (Computer Science and Maths) and Mechanical Engineering (Bachelor and PhD) and I taught Aerospace Engineering at RMIT. I have worked in the not-for-profit sector empowering young people (primary and secondary age) to make a difference in the world through projects. I have also led transformational leadership programs for adults where they created projects that made a difference in the world (e.g. Fareshare). We have be running our educational consultancy for 13 years and the It Takes a Spark STEAM Conferences (girls) and the Youth Entrepreneurs and STEAM Conferences (boys) were developed as part of our deep passion to nurture and spark cross-sectoral  STEAM learning in schools.
