Mentone Girls’ Grammar, in partnership with the Alliance, invites you and six of your Science students from Years 11 & 12 to join them for their annual Science Breakfast.
They are delighted to welcome guest speaker Jacqueline Savage, the founder of MedCorp Technologies and award winner, who is well known to the Biomedical industry through her company which develops wearable technologies for the healthcare industry.
As you are no doubt aware, the number of girls participating in Science continues to fall. By working together, we can positively influence young women and create a culture of excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) studies.
It is for this reason that Mentone implemented their annual Science Breakfast years ago where students are invited to join women from many different branches of Science to discuss the impact, study pathways, and career opportunities that exist across the broader STEM arena.
The breakfast aims to provide an opportunity for women in Science to develop a network that will promote Science, not just in schools, but across the scientific community.
Venue: Prudence Lewty Hall, Mentone Girls’ Grammar School
Cost: $15 per student (no cost for teacher).
*Please note tickets are limited to six students and one teacher per school.
RSVP: Wednesday 1 August
