The Queensland Government’s Office of the Queensland Chief Scientist, Office for Women and the World Science Festival Brisbane are pleased to present a day of FREE communication training for Women in STEM (please note that places are limited).
In Queensland our female experts in science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM) fields are international leaders and at the forefront of many breakthroughs and discoveries. They are working to make a difference to the wellbeing of individuals and communities locally, nationally and internationally.
The training is designed to equip you with the skills necessary to enter the Queensland Women in STEM competition which closes 17 February 2017.
Winners will be announced during World Science Festival Brisbane in March 2017.
The objectives of the training are:
• to design clear and simple messages about your work in STEM
• to develop skills in giving short “grabs” about your work, suitable for use in videos
• to develop some skills and confidence in speaking about your work when on camera
• to practice speaking about your work or STEM field in plain English
• to understand some basic principles for filming and producing a short video.
By registering for the training session, you commit to attending and submitting an application to the Queensland Women in STEM competition. Details and eligibility criteria are in the competition link.
What should I bring into the event?
Please prepare a 150 word plain English summary of your work in STEM and its benefit to Queensland. Please bring this summary to the training session - you may also be asked (via email) to send the summary through at least one day before the training session.
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
The best way to get to 111 George Street is via public transport to Brisbane city. 111 George Street is a short walk from Central train station and many bus stops.
There are parking facilities close by however some can be quite costly for the day:
Parking at the cultural precinct (QPAC and Qld museum) is $16/day, however a 15 minute walk over the Victoria Bridge to the venue.
