On Wednesday November 14 ten Year 10 students attended the Girls in Science Forum at The University of Melbourne sponsored by L'oreal. Speakers included the Vice Chancellor of the University Professor Duncan Maskell and five 2018 L'Oreal-UNESCO for Women in Science Fellows. They were Airlie Chapman, bridging the gap between humans and robots, Kirsty Short, discovering the link between influenza and obesity, Katrina Miljkovic, unlocking the secrets of the universe, Asha Bowen ending skin disease for Australia's indigenous children and Stefanie Zollman, enhancing our perception of the world through augmented reality. The speakers were both inspirational and entertaining and illustrated the many different fields of science where women are making an impact.

Following lunch, students participated in two workshops. The first a treasure hunt through the Tiegs Museum, Zoology Museum and the second an augmented reality/virtual reality workshop that focussed on the heart.
