    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.

    ** FREE EVENT **

    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.

    Canberra Innovation Network, 5/1 Moore St, Canberra. Street parking nearby. Family friendly venue (with some toys available for young children).


    Casual 'fireside chat' with the Canberra Women of Science and Art over lunch. Followed by Q&A with the audience and networking.


    BYO or buy a ticket to receive a lunchbox including a sandwich, piece of fruit, muffin of the day, bottled water & a serviette.
