A hands-on extension and mentoring program to ignite girls’ passion in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Curious Minds empowers girls who are passionate, high performers in STEM to explore their full potential.

Through a six-month hands-on extension and mentoring program, we combine two residential camps and mentoring program for girls in years 9 and 10 who have limited opportunities because of where they live, including regional and remote locations, their socio-economic background, and/or their indigenous status.

The program was developed in response to the Australian Government’s 2014 Restoring the focus on STEM initiative, which aims to support improved science, mathematics and digital technology education in schools and promote improved results in international tests and increased take-up of STEM subjects at the post-secondary level.

AMT and Australian Science Innovations (ASI) jointly deliver the Curious Minds program, which is supported by the Australian National University.

Our competitions and programs empower students to become better problem solvers in school, so they can be creative solution finders in life.

Whether it’s just for fun, or preparation for a program, our past papers will give you plenty to think about.
