STEM Girls Attend UOW

Congratulations to our STEM Girls group who were invited to join the University of Wollongong’s Experience IT! STEM initiative last term. Experience It! is a student enrichment STEM program run through the University in partnership with Engineers Australia providing a full day of experimental engineering activities for year 7-10 girls.

The girls thoroughly enjoyed their day engaging in a wide range of hands on workshops designed to have them thinking critically and creatively about solutions to real world problems. Our girls designed and constructed towers that could withstand floods and earthquakes, tested and traced the origins of an infection to save the population and built bridges from cardboard and straws that could hold the amazing amounts of weight.

We were very proud watching the girls designing innovative solutions to problems, but more so, being excited about their ability to make a difference to the world around them using their skills. You can even see our girls on WIN News Illawarra, with Emily from year 7 talking about her experience: https://youtu.be/r7lu2ZoxGHk 

We look forward to seeing what new challenges the girls are involved in this term!
