Science students sign-up for a lesson in business

Four STEM women from the College of Science and Engineering have been sponsored to attend a two-day convention on female entrepreneurship.

Emily Crawley and Melanie Fuller, who are both second-year PhD students in chemistry and nanotechnology respectively, will be joined by science undergraduates Jaimi Ross and Tesnim Haji at the Galaxy Convention in December 2017, which is run by the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for All-Sky Astrophysics (CAASTRO).

The four women have been sponsored to attend the convention by their College and Flinders support group, STEM: Women Branching Out, in order to equip them with the skills necessary to take their ideas out of the lab and into the market.

They will have the opportunity to network with STEM graduates from across Australia and participate in a range marketing and strategy workshops that will expose them to vital aspects of running a business.

More information on the conference is available from the Galaxy Convention website.
