WiSE (Women in Stem and Entrepreneurship) Program

Last month two teams of Year 10 Girls from McKinnon participated in the Monash University WiSE program. Each team had to learn how to use and program a micro:bit to develop and pitch an entrepreneurial idea. Of over 100 teams from all over the state, ten teams were chosen to go through to the next round. 

We congratulate Team 2 from McKinnon who have been successful in making it to the next stage. The team members include Jaime Tyzack, Julia Giantsos, Grace James and Catherine Braniska led by their teacher Ms Emily Nicholls.

These girls will now compete in the next round where the best two teams from that ten will win an immersive entrepreneurial experience to Silicon Valley, California USA!

Congratulations and good luck in the next stage.
