For the love of science

​Bhumisha Lal will take part in this year’s STEM Girl Power program

A love of science and an encouraging teacher are helping a Noosa District State High School student move a step closer to her dream career.

Bhumisha Lal has been selected to participate in this year’s STEM Girl Power program. Bhumisha will join 50 Year 10 students from around Queensland to attend the 2020 STEM Girl Power Camp this month.

Bhumisha hopes to have a career in science and medicine, and perhaps follow in her brother’s footsteps and study biomedical science with a goal to becoming a neurosurgeon.

'I think the processes involved in STEM underpin our future,' Bhumisha said.

'It’s a very interesting and exciting field. I’m looking forward to attending the camp and meeting other girls with a passion for STEM.'

Biology teacher Karli-Ann Livingstone, who will also attend the camp, said Bhumisha had showed an active interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics for several years and was a Sunshine Coast STEM ambassador in Year 7.

'The STEM Camp is a great opportunity for Bhumisha and all the girls attending,' Kali-Ann said.

'They will get to spend time with like-minded students, visit cutting-edge research facilities and the World Science Festival, and meet role models working in STEM industries.'

The STEM Girl Power initiative aims to provide female students with experiences in STEM and to encourage students to participate in STEM at schools and consider it as a further option.
