Our next Imaginarium participant profile is Meaghan, a Year 6 student from Northam who attended the Astro Engineering course during the school holidays.
Meaghan currently lives on a farm with four pet sheep in the backyard and will enter Year 7 as a boarder in 2018.
Meaghan loves building and programming with Lego Mindstorm EV3s and Lego Technics.
She is also very interested in robotics and foreign languages and is currently teaching herself how to read and speak Japanese and French.
Meaghan is strong in Mathematics because she said “it’s logical and makes sense” and Science because she likes “exploring how things work and finding solutions to problems”.
When she is older, Meaghan would like to become a human rights lawyer or a robotics engineer, inventing things to help people.
“I want to help people who live in parts of the world who don’t enjoy the same rights and freedoms that we do in Australia,” she said.
Meaghan is inspired by Michelle Obama and Amal Clooney, and her favourite book is Ally Carter’s All Fall Down as she can relate to the main character and finds the politics in the book interesting.
