We run programs focusing on improving STEM education and career paths, achieving greater gender equity and diversity, and connecting globally for the benefit of Australia.
We also run a number of prestigious awards which recognise excellence across a range of disciplines.
STEM in schools
We’re addressing the problem of low participation rates in STEM subjects by developing teaching modules that tap into students’ concerns about global warming, climate change and sustainability. Our STEM education in schools program is called STELR (Science Technology – Leveraging Relevance).
