Biomechanics Research & Innovation Challenge

Participating schools

As a BRInC Mentee you will get to work in a team of four to five girls to develop your own biomechanics project and story. Over 100 days, with the guidance of a mentor, you will use laboratory-based resources and access training on a weekly basis to gain hands-on experience in biomechanics and the biomedical engineering industry.

You will take part in design thinking workshops and masterclasses facilitated by BrainSTEM to further progress your scientific and entrepreneurial discoveries. The workshops are led by BrainSTEM, industry partners and international leaders in the field. These workshops and masterclasses aim to provide you with critical life skills and help you to develop important STEM and entrepreneurial skills. During the program, you will meet other like-minded girls and together you get to create your own biomechanics stories. You do not need any previous knowledge of biomechanics or STEM, only an interest to learn and a curious mind are needed.

To end BRInC, together with your team and mentor, you will attend an online event where each team will deliver a project pitch and share their biomechanics story. You will get to learn from your fellow team members as well as network with important stakeholders in the field.

The program is organised in line with the Australian Government’s COVIDSafe principles and can be moved to on online format if required.

We look forward to working with the schools that have already signed up.
