What’s more fun than playing different types of games? What about getting showbags with oodles of giveaways, sharing a space with miniature and giant-sized robots, solving puzzles with friends, and learning about careers pathways from interesting and dynamic women working in STEM!!
It was great to see ten Kew High School students seize this experiential learning opportunity at Deakin Uni in August. The ‘Go Girl, Go for IT’ event involved a trade show expo, Women in STEM panel discussion in the lecture theatre, and focus group activities utilising different technology. The students engaged in problem-solving, critical thinking, analyses and innovation – all core skills for job security into the future.
