Girls in STEM 2018

BE INSPIRED BY STORIES OF SUCCESS IN STEM CAREERS

Each year MAV hosts Girls in STEM events in locations in Melbourne and regional areas.

These events for year 9 and 10 girls are designed to inspire students using the personal experiences and stories of women working in STEM based careers.  Selected events will also include hands-on experiences for students to engage in the exploration of mathematics in real-life STEM contexts. All of our Girls in STEM events emphasise the mathematics required for success in various careers, and the importance of making the right subject choices in VCE, to ensure success at university and in the workplace.

In 2018 we have two ‘Inspired by curiosity’ Girls in STEM events:

Event 1: Bendigo

Tuesday 24th July 2018

     

Event 2: Ivanhoe

Friday 3rd August 2018

Partner opportunities:

For each Girls in STEM event we work with STEM industry partners to provide:

  • inspiring speakers
  • hands-on activities
  • sponsorship.
