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.

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

  • Clare Kenyon

    You do not have to conform to the white lab coat stereotypes that we so often think of when we imagine women in science. Wear the lipstick, play sport – do whatever other things make you happy.
