Year 10 Girls Join “Young Women in STEM”

Yesterday, eight Year 10 girls flew to Adelaide to attend the Young Women in STEM conference; hosted by the University of Adelaide, this program is designed to promote and encourage female students to pursue a pathway in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Our students participated in a range of hands-on workshops including cranes and cantilevers, DC electric motors, taxonomy and classification of organisms. Across the day, the girls were spoken to by a number of lead female researchers and PhD students in fields such as Mathematics, Engineering, Architecture, Astrophysics and Biology.

They all encouraged the students to be creative and curious with their thinking and ambitious with their future goals.
