ANU camp rewards curiosity

ANU camp rewards curiosity

An East Kimberley College student has taken her curious mind all the way to Canberra this school holidays after she was selected for a prestigious Federal Government program.

Caitlin Dobson, 15, was one of 60 Australian female students selected for the Government’s 2019 Curious Mindswinter camp at the Australian National University last week, where the Year 9 and 10 students received specialist coaching and attended industry expert lectures, interactive sessions and field trips in the STEM field.

Caitlin said she enjoyed the experience.

Federal Member for Durack Melissa Price said Caitlin received six months coaching in STEM subjects by women already working in the field, with the winter camp wrapping up the program. “I congratulate Caitlin,” she said.

“I hope from this experience she is inspired to continue her studies in STEM.

“The Federal Government is supporting these girls to pursue their passion for STEM subjects: science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and I’m proud Caitlin has chosen to go down this path. We need more people to explore this option as many future jobs lie ahead in this area.”

The Federal Government has committed $2.35 million to continue and expand the Curious Minds program.
