This year, we will be inviting 200 girls aged 10-14 to participate in interactive workshops to discover STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). This whole exciting and free event will take place in the buildings of the Department of Telecommunications and the Department of Computer Science of the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow!

 Lucy Reynaud is an Aussie expat married to a fabulous Frenchman and has 3 young children who were each born in different countries. She’s an all or nothing girl, therefore most likely to be found either out training for a half marathon… or lazing around reading her third book this week. She is a Gemmologist and Diamond Grader by profession, a total nerd, and likes to think of herself as a semi-professional dumpling & massage tester too.
