L'Oréal Australia Girls in Science Forum 2016 - Thursday 27 October 2016


We are no longer accepting registrations for this event as we have reached our venues' full capacity.  If you would like to be placed on a waitlist email and we will contact you if we receive any cancellations.

Join this year’s Australian L'Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Fellows at a Girls in Science schools forum at the University of New South Wales.

These three inspiring women are in the early stages of their scientific careers and are chosen for their outstanding achievements in their chosen fields. Past fellows have included biologists, botanists, zoologists, doctors, astronomers and physicists.

The students will have an opportunity to hear from the fellows including their scientific interests and the discoveries they have made. Each scientist will give a short presentation in a way that is engaging and relevant. Then there will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.

It’s a free event – best suited for female year 9, 10 and 11 students - where students with a passion for science can hear about the Fellow’s research and experience as woman scientists, whilst also discuss the potential for future study or careers in science.

After the forum, students will tour the UNSW campus, guided by current science students. We’ll also offer a light lunch as a further chance for students and teachers to interact with the Fellows.

Making Materials Matter: Engineering innovative materials for our changing world

Everything we make and use in the world around us uses some kind of material - we aim to discover and research the properties of materials in order to improve them or apply them in an engineering context to large scale projects. 

THE DNA WORKSHOP: X-Men, Crime Scenes and Family Trees

DNA makes every organism on this planet genetically unique. Through the use of current molecular techniques, this workshop provides insight into the way in which DNA can be used to solve crimes, study genetic changes in disease, and investigate relationships between different organisms.

From the deserts to the ocean, ancient life to modern wonders

Students will get a tour of some of the BEES facilities and get some hands on experience with activities that showcase what life is like as a scientist working in the fields of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences.
