What is WoW
Jump aboard and get ready to learn about the Tasmanian seafood industry.
The Working on Water (WoW) program was created in 2008 to introduce students from Years 9 and 10 to a wide range of career opportunities available on, in and around the marine environment. The range of careers available in Tasmania is incredibly diverse, and includes positions in the seafood industry, marine sciences and tourism.
The aim of WOW is to students with an authentic experience, seeing and hearing how you can get into different jobs, and what is involved once you are working.
The program explores the seafood and marine resource industry in four sections: marine science and research, marine resource management, seafood industry, and training and transferable skills. Students will gain an understanding of how the different components of the marine sector operate, and find out where to look online for key information relating to careers in the industry.
Previous programs have seen students tour aquaculture farms, disscet fish, visit the Australian Antartic Divison, engage with a wide variety of people working across the industry as well as meet other like minded students.
