Girls Choose Maths

Last term on International Women’s Day, twenty-three girls from Year 9 attended a ChooseMaths Lecture at the Imax Theatre at the Melbourne Museum, hosted by Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) and sponsored by BHP Billiton. The event inspired students to consider the various pathways that are open to them by pursuing Mathematics in school and beyond.

Several presenters spoke about their current professions as Medical Statisticians, Astronomers, Research Engineers, Software Developers, Biologists and more. Following the event, Samara S and Alexandra P shared their insights from the day to the Middle School students while Tal D and Mia O presented to the Senior School students. The event led to many enlightening conversations not only amongst the Year 9 Girls but across the College.
