Tradiebot Industries, an Australian advocate for STEM education, is joining the Tech Hub at WorldSkills Australia’s Skills Show 2018, a flagship skills and trades event funded by the NSW Government and being held in Sydney in June.
For the first time, WorldSkills Australia has invited Tradiebot Industries and other technology and STEM education leaders to demonstrate the breadth and depth of science, technology, engineering and mathematics-based careers that are available through skills and trades pathways.
Tradiebot Industries is spearheading industry 4.0 revolution providing automated solutions, virtual environments and developing new skills and career paths for tomorrow’s smarter workforce. Tradiebot Industries will bring STEM skills to life with the launch of the Immersability project, an industry first Virtual/Augmented Reality Training and Service Solution developed in partnership with Deakin University and industry partners.
These training solutions allow the use of remote tools and experts to provide up-skilling, training and performance of tasks such as automotive services and repairs within a virtual or augmented environment.
WorldSkills Australia is hosting the Skills Show and WorldSkills CEO Brett Judd said the involvement of leaders in the STEM fields such as Tradiebot Industries would play a major role in raising the profile of STEM skills in Australia. “One of our priorities with the Skills Show is to promote the importance of STEM pathways and provide information on how students can pursue these opportunities,” said Mr Judd.
“Joining with Tradiebot and supporting their progressive approach to STEM education highlights the shared passion of both organisations for unlocking and accelerating promising talent in science, engineering and future technologies.”
Tradiebot Industries Founder and Chief Creator Mario Dimovski said: “Skills Show 2018 gives us a chance to demonstrate to young people, who are the future of industry, the revolutionary changes taking place in sectors like automotive. It’s the new world of AI and AR that totally re-engineers this massive industry.”

During the Skills Show, more than 400 apprentices and trainees will compete in 50 skills at the WorldSkills Australia National Championships.
