On August 12th, 2017...

Working together with Girl Guides Australia, and in celebration of National Science Week, we hosted our 2nd annual g4g Day@Canberra and welcomed 150 girls aged 10-16 at the impressive Melrose High School's ACE SEC, our science-loving venue!

A full day of hands-on science and technology discovery awaited the girls – from learning about the phenomenon of light and the role it plays in the environment, to capturing celestial images with deep sky imaging software, to creating cool robotics and bristlebots, to even becoming biodiversity detectives with seeds and bees!

In a surprise science activity, the girls got to learn about small marsupials native to Australia and wildlife conservation… and meet a g4g VIP guest, a bettong

Thank you to our wonderful team - especially our lead, Michelle - and looking forward to seeing you all next time, Canberra! 

 
 

Last August we hosted the first annual event in Canberra and it just so happened to be the very first g4g event in Australia - our 6th continent! From designing prosthetic legs with Engineers Without Borders to discovering the science of waves through light & chocolate experiments and creating “gooey” non-Newtonian fluids, the girls had the opportunity to build skills and learn applications and opportunities in STEM fields. We are thrilled to be back in Canberra this year!

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!”
