Sarah Chapman is on a mission to inspire the next generation of STEM thinkers in QLD and beyond.

As part of the expert advisory board for Women in Science Australia and the head teacher of science at Townsville State High School, wonder she received the Prime Minister’s Secondary Science Teaching Prize in 2013!
