STEM Sisters launch at AGL Loy Yang opens world of possibilities for Gippsland girls

A project aimed at increasing young women’s awareness of opportunities in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) was launched today at AGL Loy Yang.

The STEM Sisters project, which is the concept of Baw Baw Latrobe Local Learning and Employment Network (LLEN), will allow young women to make better informed choices about studying STEM related subjects at secondary school and in higher education.

Today’s launch will see around 140 year nine female students from schools across Gippsland gather at AGL Loy Yang to hear from women successfully working in STEM roles in the region.

The STEM Sisters project will take place throughout 2018 and include a range of activities aimed at encouraging young women to consider a career in STEM.
