Women in STEM Forum

Women in STEM Forum
2 July 2019

STEM stands for Science Technology Engineering and Maths. The Forum's aim was to encourage women to enter the STEM fields of work.

Professor Lisa Harvey-Smith, Australia's first Women in STEM ambassador, was one of the guest speakers at the 'Women in STEM forum'. Lisa was particularly excited to have arrived in Esperance at the same time as 40th Anniversary celebrations for Skylab. Lisa made her way to the museum and was super excited to see the exhibition.

Lisa shared her career journey with students from Esperance SHS and other leaders in the STEM fields in Esperance.

Other speakers were local agronomist Holly Meiklejohn and boilermaker Tenique Adams.

The event was run and organised by members of the school's Girls Leadership Project, a program which focuses on addressing health, wellbeing, leadership and resilience with young women.
