The Sky’s the Limit for Indigenous Scientist Karlie Noon

A Kamilaroi woman from Tamworth, a mentor and scientist, Karlie recently became the first Indigenous person in NSW to attain a double degree in science and mathematics. Karlie has made it her life mission to make STEM accessible to people of all different backgrounds.

“If you find it interesting, do it! A career in STEM is one filled with excitement and opportunity. For me, it’s showed me that I can achieve anything. It has also allowed me to help my family and community. I’m in a position where I can support my family with their career goals and give back to my community by assisting in projects that inspire and educate.” she said.
