Five incredible women, two webinars, oodles of activities/resources and one

That's what's on for *Canberra Women of Science of Art *
All the details: https://bit.ly/CbrWomSciArt-ASC

These interesting people are anything but ‘boring scientists’ or ‘wacky
artists’. They have written books with environmental messages; invented a
robot-delivered school experience for sick kids; created
education-technology to tell ancient, indigenous Australian stories; taught
children how to observe, draw (and be curious about) nature; led grassroots
action on sustainability and climate change…

*Two webinars*
Saturday 15 Aug, 11am with a focus on families (but open to all) - direct
link to register
Monday 17 Aug, 7:30pm with a focus on teens (but open to all) - direct link

The women featured are:

   - Nicole Godwin; author and Founder of Tusk Books (Saturday session)
   - Megan Gilmour; social innovator and Co-Founder and CEO of Art of
   Agency, Robots4Good and Missing School (Saturday session)
   - Julia Landford; botanical artist, environmental educator and Founding
   Director of the NatureArt Lab, the only environmental arts education
   centre of its kind in Australia (Saturday session)
   - Mikaela Jade; Indigenous entrepreneur, Founder and CEO of Indigital,
   which offers digital skills programs for First Peoples to leapfrog into
   the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Monday session)
   - Maddie Diamond; social and environmental activist, Executive Officer
   of SEE-Change, and Founder of Trash Gather, a youth-led volunteer group
   that organises rubbish clean ups around Canberra (Monday session).

They will talk about their passions and how they've navigated their diverse
