Meet Ering Hughes, a highly passionate Senior Surface Water Engineer who also is involved in delivering engineering outreach to remote schools in the Torres Straits in collaboration with Engineers Without Borders. As a 2019 Superstar of STEM, Erin clearly shows a huge interest in inspiring the next generation of engineers! Hosted by Ben Newsome from Fizzics Education More about Erin Hughes With water being fundamental to life, no wonder it is being heralded as the next global crisis. Growing up in the Torres Straits, Erin was surrounded by water and saw first-hand the impact engineering could have on local communities when trying to manage water challenges. As a result, surface water engineering became the focus of Erin’s career. In addition to her career, she is passionate about STEM education and improving the quality of life in remote indigenous communities. Her belief that ‘closing the gap’ can be achieved through both sustainable, evidence-based engineering projects and the two-way sharing of knowledge and cultures underpins her practice.  Erin is currently a 2019-2020 Superstar of STEM and over the last 4 years has been working on outreach programs which deliver engineering projects to remote schools in the Torres Straits in collaboration with Engineers Without Borders. www.linkedin.com/in/erin-hughes-64935567 More about Engineers without Borders Engineers Without Borders Australia (EWB) is a member-based, community organisation that creates social value through engineering. EWB believes that engineering and technical professions have a significant role to play in solving global challenges.
