STEM Sells is a program designed to inspire young women in years 7, 8 & 9 to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) while developing their leadership and business skills.
Across the 10-week program girls will gain skills in 3D printing, electronics, robotics, web development and much more.
Our young innovators will then use these skills to create and develop their own STEM focused business idea and prototype.
Mentored by business and pitching experts from PwC as well as local Canberra innovators and tech startup founders, each girl will have the opportunity to transform their innovative and world changing ideas into functional businesses and prototypes.
This unique program, delivered in partnership with the Canberra Innovation Network and The Creative Element, aims to show young girls that STEM is for them! Providing a safe and supportive environment to explore the creative real-world applications of STEM.
Learn from experts a variety of skills over the course of 5 weeks.
Come up with your own business idea with the help of experienced mentors.
Create your product and sell it.
Sessions will take place from 4:30pm to 7:30pm starting on the 1st of May.
