Strong future for women in STEM

In honour of the International Day for Women and Girls in Science, the Zonta Club of Hobart recently celebrated a group of talented year 10 girls who have chosen to further their education in Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM) subjects at Government House.

The occasion was hosted by Governor of Tasmania Barbara Baker and served as a platform to acknowledge the students’ passion and dedication to STEM.

The Governor presented the Zonta Club of Hobart Scholarship for STEM to Phoebe Mason, recognising her exceptional achievements and commitment to the STEM field.

Phoebe completed year 10 at Clarence High School last year and is now studying STEM subjects at Rosny College.

Six other candidates received a certificate recognising their commendable achievements.

The Zonta Club of Hobart is a local chapter of Zonta International dedicated to building a better world for women and girls.

Empowering them in their pursuit of education and careers in STEM is a testament to the Club’s commitment to fostering a supportive and inclusive environment for women in science.
