The school theme for National Science Week in 2022 is Glass: More than meets the eye. It is based on the UN International Year of Glass. It will celebrate the many roles that glass plays in our lives – from phone screens to optical fibre to glassware in labs – plus investigating glass as a part of our sustainable future. The uses for and intrinsic nature of glass in science make it a suitable topic for investigation across all strands of science education.
We asked year 10 students from the STEM Girl Power Initiative to interview experts who enjoy science, technology, engineering or maths-based careers all about their passion for STEM and what their everyday is really like in the workplace or out in the field.
What is the STEM Girl Power Initiative
Our interviewers are from the STEM Girl Power Initiative, Year 10 girls in state schools across Queensland who are interested in STEM and want to engage more students, especially other girls, into STEM careers.
