The three fellows presented their research to over 160 high achieving female students in year’s 9-12.
The students then had the opportunity to ask the fellows questions about their day to day life, how they got to where they are now and their research.
The school students were also given a tour of the Synchrotron facility by Synchrotron staff.
The students then joined the three fellows for afternoon tea.

“Thank you very much for the invitation to join the L’Oréal Australia For Women in Science Forum, which was informative and very inspiring. It was an amazing experience for the girls to have a guided tour of the Synchrotron with concise and clear explanation of the function and importance of the work the scientist do there.
It was an absolute pleasure to listen to the three Fellows about their work and their journey up to this point.
Once again, thank you very much.”
“The Synchrotron was very interesting and the students were fascinated by some of the applications and research taking place. The forum however, was definitely the highlight for them – some excellent discussion took place on the bus on our way back to school. The girls were truly inspired by the three women, and the fact they all had children and a career seemed to be something that surprised many of them.
Thank you for providing such a wonderful experience for our students.”

“We loved it! The girls found the tour fascinating and really appreciated the 3 speakers’ openness and relaxed style.
Venue great, afternoon tea great, showbags spectacular (there were squeals of delight on the bus trip home as girls discovered their L’Oreal treats)
Minor point: Tour guides perhaps need small microphones( sometimes it was difficult to hear)
See you next year.”
