Details of events and activities:
The BIO and Beyond Student Challenge
The University of Sydney and Women NSW are hosting “Bio and Beyond” as part of NSW Women’s Week 2020. Four teams from Sydney Girls High and Presbyterian Ladies College have been working on their cutting edge designs of the future and research into how bioengineering can solve problems relating to human health and the built environment. Up to 100 High school students from Years 10-12 are invited to participate as audience members, and the public are also invited to attend. The aim is to encourage more female students to consider STEM subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Students will also hear from inspiring women; the Minister for Women, the Minister for Education and the Chancellor of Sydney University.
Students can also learn how they can participate in the 2020 Sydney University Bioengineering Outreach Challenge. Regional high schools are also invited to make an EOI for sponsored travel and accommodation in Sydney. To attend the event please email: Shannon.Bishop@facs.nsw.gov.au.
Please note places are limited and RSVP’s are essential.
NSW Women’s Week Health Screening Forum
Older Women's Network Inter-generational Forum
Older women are often marginalised and their role overlooked, and they may feel that younger people do not value or respect them. The Older Women’s Network (OWN) assists older women in finding networks and having their voices heard, which contributes to their sense of self and purpose. Older women in NSW have the opportunity to share their stories, through an inter-generational forum and radio program. An inter-generational forum will be hosted during 2020 NSW Women’s Week called Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow, which will include a panel of women of different generations sharing their life stories. A host will cover the event and share with community radio stations in NSW, giving older women a forum to share their experiences and celebrate their achievements.
