Sydney Dinner, June 2021
Over the past two centuries, energy has radically transformed our world. Beginning as an abstract scientific concept of motion, it has evolved into the central variable that links all the physical sciences. The history of energy is the history of engineering itself, of turning theories into realities. Drawing on his personal experiences working at GPA Engineering and the Future Fuels CRC, guest speaker Nick Kastelein will provide an engineer’s reflection on the journey of innovation that got us to where we are, and the theory that might become reality tomorrow.
Guest Speaker: Nick Kastelein
GPA Engineering Senior Mechanical Engineer
