Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

FE­MALE teach­ers across Aus­tralia are key to nur­tur­ing ta­lented girls who are keen to ex­plore ca­reers in the agri-tech sec­tor, which is now be­ing boosted by a new pro­gram led by CQUniver­sity Aus­tralia. Lead re­searcher Dr Amy Cosby is seek­ing ap­pli­ca­tions from fe­male STEM, dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy and agri­cul­ture teach­ers from ru­ral, re­gional and re­mote Aus­tralia to par­tic­i­pate in the Women in Agri-tech project. Dr Cosby said the project aimed to cre­ate and fos­ter a strong net­work of fe­male teach­ers who will be­come lead­ers in dig­i­tal lit­er­acy, STEM and en­trepreneur­ship in re­gional, ru­ral and re­mote ar­eas. Ap­pli­ca­tions are now be­ing sought from fe­male agri­cul­ture, STEM and dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy teach­ers from re­gional, ru­ral and re­mote high schools across Aus­tralia to par­tic­i­pate in the Women in Agri-tech Ed­u­ca­tion Sym­po­sium. They can ap­ply via www.wom­eni­nagritech.com. Ap­pli­ca­tions close Oc­to­ber 30 2018. For any in­quiries con­tact Amy Cosby via a.cosby@cqu.edu.au
