Future Female Scientists at IPAS
As part of Children’s University Science Camp in Adelaide, on 29 August 2017 IPAS proudly hosted 20 science students – all FEMALES- from Renmark and Murray Bridge high schools. Drs Ben Sparkes and Chris Perrella, led the students on tours of IPAS, firstly to see our state-of-the-art fabrication facilities and equipment such as the high-tech 3D Metal and Ceramic printer and 5–Axis Ultrasonic Mill, with expert commentary from Mr Evan Johnson and Mr Lijesh Thomas. The students then had hands-on experience with a biomedical imaging device facilitated by Dr Jiawen Li, and with different light transmission applications in the Optics lab. All students showed great interest in science through constantly interactive enquiries with leading researchers and experienced technicians. All the best for our future scientists, we hope this experience will continuously develop your passion for science especially in photonics!
