Female students take part in Foodbytes Challenge

Gippsland Tech School is hosting an exciting three-day health-related ‘Design Challenge’ event for female students across Gippsland.

The Women in STEM Foodbytes Challenge commenced yesterday, focusing on promoting healthy eating and wellbeing, with 52 female students and 10 teachers representing 14 High Schools from across our Gippsland community.

Students are working together to develop a project and a communication piece to raise awareness around health, nutrition and wellbeing for young people in the Latrobe Valley.

GTS Director, Paul Boys, said the challenge is “the first event of its kind across Gippsland”.
