A number of initiatives are leading the charge on engaging young women in STEM. AIR4 in Melbourne saw 1,400 female students participate in STEM activities at Luna Park, whilst Raytheon is set to launch MathsAlive! in Canberra to finally answer the question of whether students will actually use the maths they learn in school. 

In other news, recent developments in space highlight the importance of international collaboration, the University of SA strengthens France-Australia relations, SA benefits from the latest round of the Collaborative Research Fund, Frazer-Nash expands its presence in Adelaide, and we look at the United Technologies/Rockwell Collins restructure in the wake of the deal being finalised.

And the house announcements: Defence Week will go out on Friday next week following an internal function in Yaffa Media.
