In week 6, 16 Year 7 girls were selected to be a part of presentations and lectures with Mr. Roy McPherson as part of Science Week. The two visiting female scientists. Dr Karen Weynberg who studies Viruses at the University of Queensland, and Dr Camila Cotrim who studies proteins and drug discovery at Griffith University, showcased their work with the girls and were able to answer questions on a variety of topics. Both talked about their work and what it was like to be a scientists as a woman, and what it was like to go to university. The student’s feedback was that they enjoyed the day immensely and perhaps we have some budding scientists considering future careers in science discovery.  The Catch a Rising Star science week event held at Yungaburra state school was facilitated by Adrianne Telford, Year 5/6 Teacher and STEM coordinator.
