STEM superstar set to smash stereotypes
UTS has a new “Superstar of STEM” with the announcement that Dr Alex Thomson, Manager of the UTS Deep Green Biotech Hub, will join a group of 60 women chosen by Science &Technology Australia (STA) this month to help “smash” society’s gender assumptions about working in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The diverse group of inspiring female scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians join a group of 30 chosen in 2017 to kick off the five year Superstars of STEM program. Ultimately 150 female STEM role models will be equipped not only with advanced communication skills but also genuine opportunities to use these skills in the media, on the stage and in speaking with decision makers.
