My name is Marita and I'm the Founder and Executive director of Robogals.
I'm currently in my 5th year of mechatronics engineering and computer science at the University of Melbourne. It's a long degree, but it's very challenging and stimulating. :)
I'm posting because tomorrow is when I leave (by train!) for Adelaide to attend the Robogals SINE (national conference) AU/NZ 2011. It's the 5th SINE we've ever run, and I'm promised that it will be the best. :)
There'll be heaps of fun activities, free stuff and amazing female engineering students there, so I cannot wait!
To have a peek at what's in store, we have new t-shirts! They arrived on Monday - two days ago - after the Melbourne and Global chapters went to the Synchrotron for a site-visit, which is why some of us were able to model the shirts.
The winning design is by Jonathan Diolaso from New South Wales, who wins a free t-shirt and the joy of seeing his design on hundreds of people all over Australia, the UK and the USA.
As well as that, we have free swag from our fantastic sponsors GE, Leighton Holdings, and Google for our early RSVPs.
Anyway, there's heaps more to do until tomorrow, so I'll blog again when I'm on the train on my way to Adelaide :)
