Professional and community engagement

Kenneth collaborates with the Australian Science and Mathematics School, a government-run secondary school on the Bedford Park campus of Flinders University. He has mentored students undertaking the year 12 subject Extension Studies, enabling students to propose and run their own projects as part of their year 12 studies. He regularly teaches a University Module to the year 10 and 11 students: Robotics, Electronics, Puzzle-based Learning, "Science Faces the Music" and the EWB Challenge.

Kenneth volunteers for Engineers Without Borders, a not-for-profit organisation that "works in partnership with developing communities both within Australia and overseas, assisting them to gain access to the knowledge, resources and appropriate technologies they need to improve their livelihoods."
