Who can take part in Curious Minds?
Curious Minds is an invitational program. Students are invited based on their performance in one of the following competitions:
- 2016 Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) sponsored by the Commonwealth Bank
- 2017 Computational and Algorithmic Thinking (CAT)
- 2017 Big Science Competition (BSC)
The program will be particularly targeted towards girls in underrepresented STEM subjects in years 9 and 10 who are disadvantaged, rural/remote and/or Indigenous.
Students will be identified and invitations will be sent to schools in August 2017.
Why take part?
In a fun and supportive environment, the girls will grow in confidence and ability whilst expanding their critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and their scientific networks.
They will make new friends, be exposed to outstanding role models, practise new skills, and deepen their understanding of what their future may hold in the fields of science, engineering, technology and maths.
