The ambition for the STEM Community Partnerships Program is to build a strong community of STEM-capable citizens.

Reasons to join the STEM Community Partnerships Program:

  • Generation STEM provides valuable opportunities for both top performing students and those who demonstrate a high-potential for success with a keen interest in STEM
  • The program connects schools with local STEM employers, helping to increase understanding of local STEM pathways and careers opportunities
  • Generation STEM offers an opportunity to showcase the relevance of STEM in everyday life and helps to increase student engagement in various STEM subjects
  • The program increases teachers’ confidence, skills and knowledge through exposure to contemporary STEM practices, which enhances their teaching practice
  • Generation STEM resources can support teachers’ lesson planning and delivery of the Australian curriculum
  • There is no cost to participate.

It is intended that the STEM Community Partnerships Program will result in:

  • Higher levels of youth engagement in solving community challenges and engaging with local Councils on those issues;
  • Positive STEM-based activities for students, which may increase scientific literacy and encourage interest in continuing STEM-based study;
  • Enhanced connections between local schools, local Industry and the broader STEM networks;
  • Heightened awareness of local STEM career pathways and opportunities; and
  • Increased number of ‘work-ready’ students transitioning into the local STEM workforce.
