The incredible animal the platypus is a unique Australian Species. The STEM girls wanted to use an animal from our local area in their 3D artwork. Did you know that platypus lives in Olinda Creek and surrounding areas?
We created Safety Pete to represent the Towards Safer Speeds Challenge so he can connect and share road safety messages to encourage everyone to slow down when driving on the road.
Come and visit Safety Pete in Mount Evelyn Primary School and take a photo with him to show your support for our Towards Safer Speeds Campaign!
You can even post your photo with Safety Pete on FB and Instagram using the hashtag #noneed4speed or #safetypete and be sure to follow us on @stemgirlsme.
We will pick the best 10 photos for a free coffee voucher to be used at our local cafes. Don’t forget to join the STEM Girls road safety campaign by registering on our website.
