Do you want to see more females study and work in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering andMathematics?

Can you help make it happen?


Curious Minds is a six-month program for 64 girls in Years 9 and 10 that combines two residential camps and a coaching/mentoring program. 


We are seeking women from STEM backgrounds who are keen to make a difference by coaching/mentoring a high school student who has enrolled in the Curious Minds program.  You can get full details of the coaching/mentoring opportunity from our website and also in the attached document.


Click here to apply online before Sunday 7 October 2018.


If you have previously applied to be a mentor but were unsuccessful please feel free to apply again. Selection of a mentor is based on STEM area of interest and, where possible, geographical location - this year we might have a student for you.


Returning mentors, we’d love to see you again, so please feel free to complete the expression of interest.
