Girls in Tech Expo 2018
St Peter’s Girls’ School created some wonderful connections during our inaugural Girls in Tech Expo held at Stonyfell on 8 March.
This special event was an incredible opportunity to further expose girls to technology and the rewarding career paths associated with the field.
It was also a fitting way to celebrate International Women’s Day and to launch the 2018 Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero, a STEM entrepreneurship competition that encourages girls to tackle real-life problems with technology solutions. Last year, a group of our Year 9 students won the secondary schools’ division in the national challenge for an app they devised.
In partnership with the Department for Education and Child Development (DECD), we were delighted to welcome Years 6 and 7 girls from local schools to join us for a day of dynamic seminars and workshops hosted by a variety of facilitators including industry experts.
From virtual reality to drone technology and driverless cars to humanoid robots, there was something for everybody, and the event was hailed a tech-tacular success!
