STEM Workshop for Country School Girls
Every year, the WIE group (made up of women engineers, scientists and university students) visit a rural high school to inspire girls to develop an aptitude and interest in STEM before they choose their subjects for Year 11 and 12. The STEM workshop encourages students to study science and math subjects that lead to STEM undergraduate courses, and STEM careers.

STEM Workshop 2023 – To Be Announced
STEM Workshop in Kangaroo Island 2021
Some of the activities we have done in the past include:
- Sound Through Light
Build a circuit to demonstrate the changing form of energy using everyday materials.
- Light and Colour
This workshop composes of two small activities that focus on Optics:
- Create a ‘hologram projector’ using reflective clear plastic.
- Sort coloured candies using coloured filters and torches.
- DC Motor
The students create a simple DC Motor using Copper coils, magnets, battery, and paper clips.
- Game Controller
Students are given an objective to design and create a prototype game controller for a person with disabilities using the craft materials provided.
- Zumo Robot
Students are given a short one-hour course on programming using Arduino Software to program the Flinduino microcontrollers to control their robot to go through a maze.
- Teacher PD – in any of the STEM activities we can deliver
