Description

Curious Minds is a hands-on extension and mentoring program to ignite girls’ passion in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

In a fun and supportive environment, the girls will grow in confidence and ability whilst expanding their critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and their scientific networks.

Curious Minds is a six-month program that combines two residential camps and a mentoring program, for year 8, 9 and 10 girls who are interested in STEM.

They will make new friends, be exposed to outstanding role models, practise new skills, and deepen their understanding of what their future may hold in the fields of science, engineering, technology and maths.
