Get Super excited about Science with Super Daughter Day
SuperDaughter Day is an annual, not-for-profit, International Women’s Day Event hosted by WORK180. The event is held in capital cities across Australia and New Zealand.
Since 2016, over 3000 girls aged 5-12 years old became Superheroes along with the parents, exploring the exciting world of STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths).
SuperDaughter Day was created to counteract gender stereotypes which are formed in children as young as 6 years old and to encourage young girls to explore STEM in a fun environment. Despite a huge growth in IT jobs, women account for only 16% of tech roles and the percentage of female tech grads has also been in decline since 1989.
Norman Disney & Young, A Tetra Tech Company, is passionate about correcting this imbalance. That’s why – for the second year running – we’re one of the official sponsors of SDD.
During SuperDaughter Day girls participate in a wide range of hands on activities, including:
- Magformers, Cubetto Robots and Ozobots
- Interactive Bug Displays
- Lego Mind Storms
- Makey Makey
- Visit from NAO the Humanoid Robot
- Jewelbots and interactive unicorn horns
The girls also meet some amazing female role models in tech, enjoy delicious cupcakes, and receive a goodie bag to take home!
