High school students interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) will have the chance to participate in a free program exploring the evolutionary world of simulation.

Defence business management consultancy firm Noetic Group and Simulation Australasia will introduce SimYouth 2017 at the Australasian Simulation Congress on Tuesday.

The congress, held at the International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour, Sydney, will bring together simulation innovators and technologies transforming industry, medicine and education.

NASA astronaut Michael Gernhardt, a keynote speaker for the congress, will address the inaugural SimYouth session at midday to discuss the rapidly-developing field of simulation.

Noetic Group principal John Smith said, "At SimYouth, students have the opportunity to engage with cutting-edge simulation technologies, world-class innovators and industry experts.

"We really want to change the demographic of the simulation space, opening this area up to younger people."

Simulation within the defence space will be a hot topic with Smith, a former Australian Army officer with experience in defence simulation, and Noetic Group's creative design lead Chris Doherty leading students through an innovative design-thinking workshop to develop a simulation-based solution to a real-world inspired problem.
