Encouraging young women to choose maths and science

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:09 pm on 10 July 2017

Tech development  is not just a numbers game anymore. Creative thinkers who can come up with unique solutions when problems come up need to be part of high tech according to Elanor Huntington.

She is a rare thing. She's the Dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science, the first female Dean of Engineering at the Australian National University.  She's also on a mission to encourage young women to get involved in sciences and maths.
