Design a Shirt

The Association for Women in the Sciences want to promote women working in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) with a line of awesome, beautiful and creative clothing.

It’ll be available online, in a variety of sizes, colours and designs. And all profits will go towards supporting the amazing women working in science across New Zealand.

We’ve been looking for creative designs that promote women in science, women in technology, and women in engineering. And look real good while doing it.

The competition is now closed.
