Ann and I went on a tour of the National Measurement Institute (NMI) in Sydney (Lindfield and Ryde) and it truly was an eye-popping experience. If you can ever get down there, ask for a tour!
The purpose of the visit was to establish connections between the NMI and TAFE so that students might do work experience with them for short periods of time.
We still have a lot to work out, but I would like to get a ‘formal’ list of interested students, so please let me or Ann know if you are keen to pursue this course of action.
I’ll also talk more about it in class. Please visit http://www.measurement.gov.au/Pages/default.aspx for more information about the NMI itself.
