On August 20th, 2016...

g4g launched on the other side of the world... and reached the 6th continent on the map!

Together with Girl Guides Australia, and in celebration of National Science Week, g4g Day@Canberra welcomed 130 girls aged 9-16 from 67 different schools in one impressive science-loving venue!

 
 

Twitter: #g4gDayCanberra + Full album on Facebook!

From designing prosthetic legs with Engineers Without Borders to discovering the science of waves through light and chocolate experiments to creating “gooey” non-Newtonian fluids, the girls had the opportunity to build skills and learn applications and opportunities in STEM fields.

In the words of one parent on twitter, “#g4gDayCanberra was a great experience for girls this #NatSciWk.  {my daughter’s} favourite session: ‘making goo’.  Thanks @green4girls!”
