In a statement, Optus said the roadshow, organised along with Think Digital, was conducted in a hi-tech 14-metre coach for students at Kelso Public School in central west NSW.
The topics covered were related to the students' curriculum and covered space, sustainability, history and geography.
The roadshow is a continuation of Optus’ STEM training in March, which was provided to more than 1000 Grade 6 students in various public schools across regional New South Wales, demonstrating an approach to learning that integrates science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
