The official launch of ‘The STEM Sisters – If you can’t see it, you can’t be it’ project took place on Friday the 13th October at AGL Loy Yang.
The STEM Sisters project will roll out in 2018, engaging forty five Year 10 girls from across Gippsland in a year long program that exposes them to what a career in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) might look like once they have completed secondary school.
In addition, there will also be STEM Sister Ambassadors, local volunteers who are passionate about their careers, their organisation or STEM Background. They will volunteer their time to support and promote STEM to young female learners in a vast range of original, creative and practical ways. STEM Sister Ambassadors will help to support the STEM Curriculum and raise awareness of STEM careers by revealing how essential STEM is throughout the world. They will help open the doors to a world of opportunities and possibilities which come from pursuing STEM subjects and careers.
Applications are currently open to students for the program via their school.
