In the footsteps of Marie Curie, Jane Goodall and Mary Jackson, four contemporary women of science share their stories of struggle and success.
Learn how these driven and exceptional individuals forged their way to the top of their professions through personal revelations of success, perseverance, Eureka moments and confessions of experiments they might rather forget.
This inspiring special event will include a presentation of the 2017 Queensland Women in STEM Prize: a national competition recognising pioneering women in the fields of science, technology, engineering and maths.
Panelist: Professor Kerrie Wilson
