Her Story: Inspiring Women in STEM

Katrina Falkner's display is on now.

Opening hours:

Every day from 10am–5pm, including weekends and all public holidays.

Entry to Her Story: Inspiring Women in STEM is FREE.

Women have made significant contributions to science throughout history. Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie; actress and inventor Hedy Lamarr; fossil hunter Mary Anning; and countless other extraordinary women have made important discoveries that have shaped our world. The incredible stories of these women are powerful, inspiring, staggeringly challenging and all around us.

By sharing these stories we present visible role models who can inspire, encourage and motivate the next generation of young women to follow their dreams and pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

Her Story: Inspiring Women in STEM celebrates amazing women who are blazing their own trails and encouraging others to do the same. Their stories are honest and inspiring, and show that by following your passion, you can achieve anything.

The series starts with Professor Giselle Rampersad, a Professor in Innovation in the College of Science and Engineering at Flinders University and the Program Director for the award winning Diploma of Digital Technologies.

The second display features Ms Julia Mitchell, Director of the Space Industry Association of Australia and Senior Spacecraft Systems Engineer for Sitael Australia.

The third display features Professor Katrina Falkner, Executive Dean for the Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences, at the University of Adelaide, where she also leads the Computer Science Education Research Group (CSER), and the Modelling & Analysis Program within the Distributed and Intelligent Technologies Group (DIT) within the School of Computer Science.

The final display features Dr Liz Reed, a vertebrate palaeontologist and Research Fellow within the School of Physical Sciences, University of Adelaide and a palaeontology Research Scientist, with the South Australian Museum.

This series is made possible with support from the Hon. Dr Diana Laidlaw AM.
