27 August 2018 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm$35
Who are some of the great women working in STEM in Victoria? What fields are they in? How did they get there? How is their work making a difference in our world? Learn about Victoria’s Women in STEM with high tea.
Her Place Women’s Museum Australia presents an exhibition where STEM, education and community come together. The exhibition features videos and unique artifacts and will tour to the 10 new Tech Schools being rolled out across Victoria in 2018–19. It profiles 10 women working in fields as diverse as games development, wearable tech, environmental science, cancer research, food waste, genetics, biotech, nanotechnology and mathematics. Nine of these women have been selected and presented by Her Place, with a different 10th woman profiled by each of the Tech Schools. The exhibition is accompanied by a range of education programs, community events and industry participation.
As part of this afternoon event, high tea will be served. Bubbles on arrival, ribbon sandwiches, smoked chicken & brie tart, prosciutto and asparagus quiche, scones with cream & jam, berry cheesecake, white chocolate tart, macarons, percolated Jasper coffee and tea selection.
The exhibit is a collaboration between Her Place Women’s Museum Australia and the Department of Education and Training, with support from Inspiring Australia and The Royal Society of Victoria.
