Local Ryan business, Skilligence Pty Ltd, has received a grant of $220,000 from the second round of the Women in STEM and Entrepreneurship (WISE) program. The funding will go towards their Junior Engineers project, ‘Setting up Female Students for a Successful Future Career in Tech’. Skilligence is one of 22 Australian organisations sharing in more than $4m worth of Australian Government grants.
Junior Engineers’ programs provide children with opportunities to learn coding and robotics through digital technology education programs, partnering with schools to deliver teaching programs and running school holiday and after-school workshops.
The Turnbull Government is committed to increasing the participation of girls and women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) studies and careers. This builds on the government’s $4.5 million commitment in the 2018 Budget to encourage more girls and women to study and undertake STEM careers.
