The STEM Academy is leading STEM education in Australia by supporting passionate educators who bring Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics to inquiring young minds.
The College of Science and Engineering’s STEM Academy is home to leading STEM educators and researchers. Our focus is on applying research-informed and practice-led STEM education into our teaching to provide high quality learning experiences for our students. Our aim is to work with university colleagues and schoolteachers across Australia to facilitate STEM teaching innovations and promote the concept of teaching STEM like a STEM professional.
We are passionate about expanding opportunities for educators and students with a curiosity about the world around them. We are leading changes within the university and heading initiatives in the broader education community to encourage the participation of indigenous students, women, students from rural and remote areas and the public in general to engage in STEM education.
The STEM Academy will host workshops and events, create new textbooks and education materials and provide curriculum reviews to support educators to enhance their approaches and offerings.
Together, we are inspiring the next generation of scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians to make bold discoveries and important innovations for the future.
