STELR’s WISE Project - engaging students and inspiring girls

We are about to begin filming our first career profile featuring Sarah Last, CTO and Co-founder of MimicTec.

Sarah is an innovative Agtech entrepreneur who has developed a solution to decrease the mortality rate and improve the feed conversion ratio of chickens for Australian poultry farmers.

Sarah grew up on the Mornington Peninsula with a strong connection to farm animals and wildlife.

With a Bachelor Degree in Science majoring in Animal Health, she started studying Veterinary Medicine when she was inspired to move into entrepreneurship instead.

Intending to commercialise ideas she had come up with while studying Vet science and hoping she could make a positive impact not only on farm profitability but also to improve the welfare of thousands of chickens, she began her Master of Entrepreneurship at the Wade Institute in 2016.

We’re thrilled to be able to tell Sarah’s story.

You will be able to view Sarah Last’s career profile late this year on the STELR website, STELR YouTube channel and Australia’s Science Channel, operated by RIAus (The Royal Institution of Australia).
