Event description

What do drones, balloons, ships and mini 3D-printed robots have in common? They're all part of the Canberra Women of Science and Art events for National Science Week.


Meet a diverse group of amazing Canberran women working in or inspired by science, tech, engineering, art and maths (STEAM).

These people are anything but ‘boring scientists’ or ‘wacky artists’. 

Featured at this event will be: 

  • Katie Vidal: Education lead with She Maps. Katie teaches children and teachers how to fly drones.
  • Naomi Duckworth: Engineering Manager with Department of Defence. Naomi is a systems engineer and is working on Australia’s future Navy ships. Naomi also loves design, renovations and thinking of creative ways to solve problems.
  • Claire Harris: Entrepreneur and Founder of Innovate Communicate. Claire helps scientists tell their stories and she’s also fascinated by robot technology, 3D-printing and creating a tribe of robot-art Brave Bots.
  • Dr Phil Dooley: Business founder, science writer, videomaker, science performer and science communication trainer. Phil will be MC.

ANU, Innovation Space 2.04, Level 2, Birch Building #35, 35 Science Road, ACTON ACT 2601.


Interactive mini-workshops for people of all ages. There will be some Q&A with the MC, short demonstrations and opportunities to ask and answer questions. This event will also feature hands-on activities including colouring-in for very young children.

Check out the other events, catering for different ages and levels of interactivity.
