The Zonta Club of Perth strongly supports women and girls to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) so they may be future workforce ready. At the July meeting, Kalien Selby, Acting CEO at SciTech explained that many of today’s school children will be doing jobs in the future that have not been invented yet. The rise of robotics, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence and virtual reality all provide new opportunities for those who are STEM literate. Kalien described the future plans for SciTech and by all accounts there is plenty to look forward to.
Lan Tran followed up on the science theme by describing the Game Changer Awards. These complement the highly prestigious WAITTA INCITE Awards, but are geared for schools. Lan is an ambassador for Game Changer and her company, 3D Audio Visual is a supporting partner. The winners of the 2019 Game Changer Awards will be presented on 23 November at ECU Joondalup Campus.
