Six students from Year 11 and 12 recently attended The Alliance of Girls’ Schools Australasia Annual Science Breakfast at Mentone Girls Grammar.
The breakfast gave us the opportunity to meet like-minded students and talk to women in science professions.
The highlight of the morning was the keynote speaker Dr Obranovich, a patent attorney with a PhD in Biology. She spoke of her various endeavours particularly her involvement in the case of patenting of genes in Australia. Dr Obranovich highlighted how scientific knowledge is needed more than ever within our society and that a career in science is not simply in a lab but the directions are endless.
