Our Teams

Robogals Monash

Robogals Monash (RM) is a not-for-profit, student-run organisation that aims to encourage more young women to pursue STEM career opportunities, with a particular focus on engineering. RM conducts robotics workshops with EV3 Lego Mindstorms, with the endeavour to provide students with an understanding of what engineering (especially mechatronics) entails. This is done through presentations and set interactive programming tasks designed to encourage problem-solving and critical-thinking skills.

Australian Synchrotron

ANSTO is one of Australia’s largest public research organisations and is widely recognised as an international player in the field of nuclear science and technology. ANSTO's Melbourne location is home to the ANSTO-owned and operated Australian Synchrotron. The Synchrotron is one of the Australia's most significant pieces of scientific infrastructure. It uses uses accelerator technology to produce a powerful source of light-X rays and infrared radiation a million times brighter than the sun.

The Australian Synchrotron offers secondary school tours that are designed to meet syllabus outcomes and enhance students’ understanding of nuclear science and technology. On these tours, students are able to obtain a deep understanding of how research using synchrotron and nuclear techniques delivers a wide range of benefits.

Precious Plastic Monash

At Precious Plastic Monash (PPM), our goal is to develop creative and innovative solutions to tackle plastic pollution. In 2018 PPM built their integration unit (IU), which combined four open source machine designs into a single transportable and compact plastic recycling factory. Since then they have used the IU to create unique products (including an electric guitar), educate the public at events (such as the Royal Melbourne Show) and research new techniques for plastic recycling. Precious Plastic Monash is proud to contribute to tackling a topical and significant issue in plastic pollution.

Young Scientists Australia

Young Scientists of Australia (YSA) is a science volunteer youth organisation for people aged 15-26. YSA provide volunteers to external STEM events to either run activities for students or provide mentors often over multi day programs, doing their best to help engage the students so they get the most out of the events. YSA also runs monthly events for their members and inform them of upcoming opportunities, providing both a group of like minded souls and places where they can further themselves.
