Superhero Daughter Day 2018 National Series

Superhero Daughter Day is an initiative by DCC Jobs  and Tech Girls Movement to encourage primary school aged girls to get excited about STEM. Held in March throughout various locations, the event is a unique International Women’s Day Celebration (IWD) celebration. The idea came to us in 2016, when we were searching for an alternative to the morning tea/lunch event options, and decided to create a hands on event for our next generation of women in tech. Together with partner organisations across Australia and New Zealand, the event introduces girls aged 5-12 years to the exciting world of STEM through engaging activities and workshops. On a Saturday afternoon, the girls participate in a range of activities, including:

Superhero Daughter Day

  • Building robots
  • Exploring Virtual and Augmented Reality
  • Fashion technology and wearables
  • Learning how to design an app and much more!

The girls also have an opportunity to meet inspiring female role models, enjoy cupcakes and receive a goodie bag to take home. Check out the photos from our 2017 events on Facebook.

Since its inception in 2016, the event has engaged over 1,000 superheroes and their parents/guardians. Beginning as a one-off event 


in Brisbane in 2016, Superhero Daughter Day took place in 9 cities in Australia and in Auckland, NZ in 2017.

‘Aristocrat are proud to be supporting Superhero Daughters Day this year. We recognise the importance of amazing initiatives like these which recognise the importance of exposing young children to just how fun and exciting technology can be. Superhero Daughters Day helps young girls realise all the endless possibilities available to them and in doing so enables them to fulfil their full potential. If only more of us had had such opportunities when we were younger!’ Quote-Louise Byrne, Talent Acquisition Manager

“Whether you need to fill up fast or get a meal on the go - there's a Caltex near you. With more than 1,900 service stations across Australia, we're never too far away. As one of Australia’s largest companies, we’re passionate about playing a leading role in gender equality. We know that to truly change the state of play in Australia and get more women involved in non-traditional roles such as technology and engineering, we need to ignite the spark for girls at a young age-  what better way to do this than through Superhero Daughter Day! Having seen first-hand the quality of the activities the girls participate in on the day, and the amount of fun had by all, we are proud and excited to support Superhero Daughter Day and the important work that the Girls Tech Movement and DCC do”.
