When it comes to inspiring women to pursue a career in science, technology, engineering, mathematics or design, one place we can start is our schools. By embedding these disciplines into the fabric of a young woman’s upbringing, their possibilities for exposure, learning and connection can grow. The Annie Hughston Centre is a new two storey educational building at Fintona Girls’ School in Melbourne, Victoria that is opening possibilities for the next generation of women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and beyond. Our design provides a new, contemporary identity for the School’s Mathematics and Science precinct, while embracing the charm of Fintona’s historic buildings and beautiful grounds. Named after the School’s founding Principal, The Annie Hughston Centre contains a mix of flexible classrooms, laboratories, and collaborative study areas, encouraging student’s experimentation, connection, and inspiring ideas. The educational facility will play a big role in shaping the way young women learn, the relationships and memories they form during their education, and their career paths.
