    I think Curious Minds has an important role in normalising women and girls showing an interest and passion in STEM.

    I’d definitely recommend anyone who is passionate about science to seek out opportunities like holiday and camp programs.

    I love it because it connects young women from regional and rural areas to connect with people they wouldn’t have ordinarily met with otherwise.
