Video Profiles of Women in STEM and Entrepreneurship
The ATSE STELR team has produced a series of 19 video profiles featuring female role models and entrepreneurs from STEM fields. The role models are drawn from all states and territories in Australia and cover a wide range of STEM careers.
The videos will inspire girls (and boys) to pursue STEM careers and aim to boost enrolments of girls in STEM subjects in senior years of schooling by highlighting study pathways.

“I didn’t realise that STEM had so many really interesting jobs. I thought that if you liked science you would just go in to a lab or something. I didn’t actually realise, it looks really really interesting and I will research it.” –
