STEM women shine at the Galaxy Convention

Four Flinders students have participated in the CAASTRO Galaxy Convention on female innovation and entrepreneurship in STEM, thanks to sponsorship by Flinders’ group, ‘STEM Women Branching Out’.

The two-day convention was a platform for emerging and leading entrepreneurs in STEM to share their innovations and reveal how they had achieved global impact through effective marketing strategies and business acumen.

PhD students Melanie Fuller and Emily Crawley were joined by first-year undergraduate students Jaime Ross and Tesnim Haji at the entrepreneurial event.

They were able to hear from inspirational speakers about lessons learned from real STEM enterprises, including launching experiments to the International Space Station and making a better test for breast cancer.

Dr Ula Alexander from the College of Science and Engineering and the STEM Women Committee also attended to support the Flinders contingent.

Congratulations goes to all involved.
