The overarching project goal is to provide supported pathways that improve the participation and achievement of Indigenous students in STEM subjects. The aspirational goal is to increase Indigenous representation in STEM-related professions.
The program has been designed with six integrated elements that together reinforce and add value to each other to provide Indigenous students with a customised STEM pathway.
For example, a Year 10 Indigenous student who has been involved in I2S2 or PRIME Futures would receive, through their teachers, information and encouragement to apply for the ASSETS program and Excellence Awards. They will have been supported to develop the science and mathematics skills and self-confidence to believe that they are worthy contenders for such programs, and will receive teacher assistance with their nomination. Similarly, a Year 12 Indigenous student involved in the ASSETS mentoring and leadership program will be encouraged to go on to study tertiary STEM courses, including the BSc (Extended) at The University of Melbourne. Again, their involvement in a supported STEM program will have built their capabilities and self-belief to aspire to tertiary study, and will have put them in touch with mentors who can assist them with the transition.
The high-level project outcomes and associated quality of life indicators are listed below.
