Alex, Year 10 recently had the opportunity to attend the Queensland Education STEM Girl Power workshop at QUT Gardens Point Where Art and Science Collide. Alex provides us with her reflection of this amazing experience.

I recently participated in the workshop When Art and Science Collide, at QUT Gardens Point, an Education Queensland STEM girl power session following on from the STEM girl power camp I participated in earlier this year. In this workshop, we did a range of activities relating to both science and art, with the main focuse on nuclear technology. We looked at the advantages and disadvantages of its many uses, including energy, agriculture, food, and medicine, exploring the benefits but also discussing how it can be used in a safe way going forward. 

After learning background information and conducting our initial research, we used art to get a better understanding of our scientific knowledge, looking at how it can be used to present findings to the public in a more simple and accessible way. With resources such as magazines and books, we made multiple collages about different aspects of nuclear technology.

What I enjoyed about this workshop was that it allowed us to see a whole new perspective on our scientific knowledge and quite simply it was heaps of fun. I learnt a lot about what a wide range of uses there are for nuclear technology, and I look forward to participating in more workshops in the future.​
