Girls in Engineering and Technology Program (GET Set)

Five girls inspect solar cells

The Girls in Engineering and Technology Program (GET Set) is designed for female identifying students in years 9-10, who wish to explore an education and career in engineering or technology. This free, digital, fun-filled morning of non-competitive activities will have students designing, coding, testing and more.

This year, GET Set will coincide with Ada Lovelace Day, when we celebrate the mathematician who developed the first computer program in history.

 

Delivery

This event will run between 9am-11.30pm via Zoom.

Teacher participation is recommended at all times. Due to different lockdown restrictions in each state, students are recommended to access the session individually from a computer or laptop (internet and web browser required).
