Groundwork is Key
This first term of Launch has been about building the solid platform of skills and knowledge the girls will need to leap into action on their projects in Term 2.
This has been a term of exploration and expanding horizons. In week 5, the class met Cheryl Adams - CEO of Animation Research (the company who do all the graphic overlays etc for the America's Cup races, golf tournaments etc).
Cheryl totally inspired the girls with her story from leaving school to where she is now. And it wasn't a straight trajectory.
Cheryl has had to overcome many challenges, one of those simply being a woman in a traditionally male dominated field of technology and engineering.
Cheryl told the group that if she could say one thing to her past self it would be:
Make more mistakes."
