Meet a diverse group of amazing Canberran women working in or inspired by science, tech, engineering, art and maths (STEAM).
These interesting people are anything but 'boring scientists' or 'wacky artists'. They have:
taught hundreds of children how to fly drones
created a balloon show to introduce the concept of genetics to children
sparked the start of a Canberra tribe of art-robots
used their engineering expertise to protect Australia.
Canberra Women of Science and Art will involve three separate events, catering for all ages and with different levels of hands-on activities:
Wednesday 17 August 12:30pm-1:30pm: Lunchtime fireside chat @ Canberra Innovation Network (adults + kid-friendly) FREE + lunch box available for purchase
Friday 19 August 10:30am-11:30am: Little people & families @ Woden Library (0-5 age + families/carers, all ages) FREE
Sunday 21 August 10:30am-12:30am: All-ages workshops @ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science (all ages) FREE
* This event is hosted by Claire Harris from Innovate Communicate. With thanks to our sponsors and partners: Inspiring the ACT (supported through National Science Week grant), Libraries ACT, Canberra Innovation Network, ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science, SheMaps and Double Helix.
