    Event description

    Join us at Kurrah Mia for WiTWA’s Techtrails Community Event - "STEM is for Everyone!" in the Great Southern Region. 

    This FREE event is not just an educational experience; it's a chance to join a local community where curiosity leads to discovery, and every creative idea has the potential to make a significant difference. With our 'STEM is for Everyone!' event you'll  starting a transformative journey meant to ignite your curiosity and fuel your understanding of the ever-evolving world of STEM careers.

    Picture yourself, or your children, unlocking the mysteries of space with NASA, exploring the vastness of the oceans, leading the charge in digital technology, or bringing innovative solutions to your local environment. STEM is the gateway to a world where your ideas mark the beginning of possibility.

    As we stand at the crossroads where today's technology shapes tomorrow's professions, grasping the full range of opportunities within STEM is crucial and especially so for women and girls. Our Techtrails STEM Programs are dedicated to bridging this gap, providing insights into both current and future career pathways. We're setting the stage for inspirational women in STEM to share their stories, breaking down gender stereotypes and illustrating how diversity drives innovation.

    Through our Community Events WiTWA is fostering a community where the deep-rooted knowledge of First Nations meets cutting-edge technology, where gender balance in STEM propels Australia's economic growth, and where every student, regardless of their background, is equipped with vital skills for the future. By blending different educational approaches with accessible resources and aligning personal passions with potential STEM careers, we're not just closing the educational divide—we're creating a world of endless opportunities for all.

    Parents, community leaders, and industry professionals are invited to come along to this event. Your involvement is essential as we aim to nurture an environment where young minds can excel. Together, we can ensure that our children become not only consumers of technology but also its creators and leaders. Join us as we empower the next generation with the tools and confidence to build a brighter, STEM-driven future.
