Girls in Physics Breakfasts

  • 22 Jul 2022

VicPhysics is hosting Girls in Physics Breakfasts

The events are for girls in Years 10 – 12 and women either engaged in a career in physics or engineering or are at university.
The students will be seated at tables with students from other schools. At each table we will place two or three women. Over breakfast, the students can query them about their life and work. There is also an address by a prominent scientist, who will talk about her area of interest.

Times: The Breakfasts start at 7:30am and finish about 9:30am with an optional extension to 10:00am.

There is no cost to you.
