Love a challenge and problem-solving? Fancy yourself a bit of an inventor and passionate about tackling global issues people care about, like sustainability, gender equality and climate change? Are you thinking about your future career and wanting a massive dose of inspo, plus meet other trailblazing women and changemakers along the way?

Suppose you’ve said a big yes, then arm yourself with curiosity, creativity and a sense of fun at the Future Female Innovators Summit. Held at Melbourne Connect Telstra Creator Space, you and your friends are invited to join the experiential day of action. Parents and carers are invited too – we promise they’ll love the event just as much!

What’s on the agenda?

This power-packed Summit takes place over 20 and 21 January 2022. It’s designed for female high schoolers to explore exciting pathways and careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).

Here’s what to expect when you attend the Future Female Innovators Summit

Hear from inspiring speakers in STEM

Hear from a diverse panel of women in STEM. Listen and be amazed by the stories of the important contributions already made by pioneering women. Get an exclusive preview into the future of work and exciting possibilities you can be part of.

Fun experiential learning like no other

And if that’s not all, students can also engage in fun activities like designing and making jewellery using 3D printing (rivalling the macaroni necklace made in school). There are also other learning experiences throughout the day to open our minds to the world of opportunities. Remember to follow and subscribe to Girls of Impact for regular updates on the additional activities.

Tackle real-world problems

Climate change, the pandemic, food waste and cybersecurity — just to name a few — are significant global issues. This session looks at how engineering can help solve problems, make our lives easier, more efficient, and more enjoyable. Students can pitch their ideas in a brainstorm collective solutions that change the world.
