STEM Success at Ayr High

Congratulations to Paris Poli in Year 12, who was accepted into the Queensland Resources Council - Girls in Resources Mentoring Program for 2019. The aim of the program is to provide encouragement and mentoring support for girls intending to transition into education and training for vocational and professional careers in the resources sector. Mentors will provide the girls with the benefit of their own experiences and smooth the way as they tackle the transition to university life or trade training. Paris was successful in being 1 of 20 students selected to be part of this program and will be flying down to Brisbane for the launch of the program on International Women’s Day later in March.

Congratulations also goes to Giselle Le Feuvre in Year 10, who was accepted into the 2019 STEM Girl Power Camp. The STEM Girl Power Initiative aims to provide students with experiences in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and to encourage students to participate in STEM at school and consider it as a future career option. Giselle will be travelling to Brisbane in March to attend the camp, where she will join other Year 10 girls from around Queensland to experience the World Science Festival, meet STEM role models, undertake STEM activities and visit STEM researchers.
