During her mechatronics degree at QUT, Amy joined Clenergy TeamArrow – Australia’s premier solar car racing team.

As a team driver, she helped Australia’s first solar car complete the grueling 3000  km Bridgestone World Solar Challenge from Darwin to Adelaide.

“We had to do some running repairs about 24 km out of Adelaide,” says Amy. But this didn’t prevent the team from placing in the top 10 in a very competitive field.

The experience helped Amy develop the confidence to face challenges and keep going even when things get tough.

“Working with the team was amazing. It gave me the chance to travel and gain new life experiences, and I also made some great industry contacts,” says Amy.

Amy’s skills led to her job as mechatronics engineer at Arnott’s Biscuits, where she upgrades the software that controls the production lines as new machinery is added, giving operators greater control over the production process.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”6373″ alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_circle” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”medium”][vc_column_text]
