Search begins for Australia’s new superstars of STEM

Sixty new ambassadors will be selected to inspire more young women and girls to study and work in STEM.

Member for Forrest Nola Marino said the search is on for 60 outstanding women working in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) who want to become prominent role models for the young Australian community as part of the Superstars of STEM program.

Nominations are open for the second round of the program, which supports and trains women working in the STEM sector to share their passion with the Australian community through the media, social media and on stage.

Run by Science & Technology Australia, The Morrison Government invested $1.3 million over four years to expand the Superstars of STEM.

“I encourage women in STEM fields across the South West to apply,” Mrs Marino said.

“This is a great opportunity for local women working in STEM to become long-term role models for girls and young women.”

Nominations are open until September 23 10pm. For more information or to apply visit scienceandtechnologyaustralia.org.au
