Enthusiastic female STEM professionals needed to mentor young girls

Curious Minds is a hands-on extension and mentoring program to ignite girls’ passion in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). It’s a six-month program that combines two residential camps and a STEM coaching (mentoring) program. Find out more about Curious Minds.

Curious Minds needs enthusiastic women to become Curious Minds STEM Coaches to help empower girls to excel in STEM.

As a STEM Coach, you will develop a relationship with a high-performing female student from years 9 and 10 that increases her confidence, stimulates her curiosity, inspires her enthusiasm and motivates her interest in STEM studies and careers.
