Women in Physics Breakfast
an inspiring experience that sparked my curiosity of our world, and reaffirmed the need for even more amazing women in science
The Women in Physics Breakfast was an engaging and empowering seminar. In the beginning of the breakfast, we had to put our thinking caps on to make the tallest tower out of pipe cleaners, which was a lot of fun and a good bonding experience for my table and I. Shortly after, I got the chance to speak to a PhD student studying civil engineering and a student completing a bachelor of space science. They told (our) table the amazing experiences they have had and the interesting and super cool experiments they have done while studying in the physics area–such as making a rocket. In addition, speaker, Dr Katarina Miljkovic, a planetary scientist, taught us all about impact craters and how they have shaped the Earth and our history. Overall it was an inspiring experience that sparked my curiosity of our world, and reaffirmed the need for even more amazing women in science.
