In Australia, women make up only 27 percent of the STEMM  (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine) workforce.

At the Bionics Institute, we identified the need to engage with female students at the high school level to showcase the opportunities and rewards a career in STEMM can bring. The Institute represents a unique environment where all the aspects of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine work in a collaborative manner.

In 2019, we held our first Mentoring Girls in STEMM program with Ivanhoe Girl’s Grammar, and it was a huge success. Leading female research scientists from the Bionics Institute mentored selected Year 11 students, with the unique learning experience designed for those students to become more engaged, educated and excited about a potential career in STEMM.

With your help, the Bionics Institute could expand this program across further schools. $5,000 sponsors one school to participate in our program. 

Would you like to help these women from the Bionics Institute mentor the future generation of females working in STEMM?
