Curious Minds empowers girls who are passionate, high performers in Science,  Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) to explore their full potential, through a six-month hands-on extension and mentoring program.

Do you have a curious mind?

If you’re a girl in year 9 or 10 who is passionate about STEM subjects, or if you’re a female professional working in the STEM industry and would like to become a coach, then please express your interest using the buttons below.

Applications for the 2022-23 program are now closed, but we are taking EOIs for the 2023-24 program.

    I think it’s important to let girls know that there are many ways to pursue your STEM passions, and that even with life’s obstacles, if you keep trying you can find your own path into a STEM career.

    Curious Minds taught me that there is a space in the world for people like me. Young, creative women who are good at maths are necessary right now in the world and I hope that I can use my skills to make the world a better place.
