What is Curious Minds?
Curious Minds is aimed at highly capable girls in years 9 and 10 who have an interest in STEM learning areas.
This is a six-month program that combines two residential camps and a mentoring program.
The camps will enable the girls to explore all aspects of science, technology, engineering and maths through guest lectures, interactive sessions, practicals and field trips.
The mentoring program will see each student matched with a female mentor recruited from a variety of STEM backgrounds and together they will construct personal goals for the student. This might include discussing study options and career pathways, undertaking further extension work with support from their mentor, developing ideas based on learnings from the camp or working on a project.
When is it held?
Students are required to commit to both residential camps, and to contacting their mentor/be contacted by their mentor at least once a month between camps.
