International Day of Women and Girls in Science
I joined our fantastic Minister for Education at John Monash Science School in Clayton to celebrate International Day of Women and Girls in Science. They were awesome. It is an amazing school with remarkable students – bright and very engaging. We enjoyed it very much. I want to thank Peter Corkill, the principal, and his team for showing us around and for the leadership. As we know, there is still a significant gender gap in all levels of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, as the minister said to the students on that day. On this side we are a government that recognises the importance of supporting full and equal access to science, and not just in schools.
