How your school can get involved in STEM CPP.

Joining the STEM Community Partnerships Program is free, but you will need to consider the following information before applying:

Your commitment

  • One teacher from any STEM subject area needs to attend a teacher professional learning day. This will provide the project challenges and map projects to the Australian and NSW curriculum.
  • At least one class to work on STEM-based projects.

Time considerations

  • STEM-based inquiry projects are flexible and can scale from 15-100 hours based on timetable constraints and student ability.
  • Time out of the classroom is required for industry site visits.
  • Time is needed to prepare for and attend the end-of-year project showcase.
  • Mentor time is flexible and negotiated between mentor and teacher - there is no minimum time requirement.

How we support schools

  • Teacher relief is covered for the teacher professional learning day.
  • We will coordinate industry visits with local businesses, including transport. Any teacher, including career advisors, can supervise the visit. Schools are responsible for any in-school procedures such as parent permission slips.
