Welcome to the first edition of the CSIRO Education and Outreach Newsletter for 2023. This term, we are excited to bring you updates about our latest programs and initiatives aimed at inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers. Our continued goal is to make science more accessible and engaging for students of all ages, and to encourage them to pursue careers in STEM fields.
In this edition, you will find links to our STEM information sessions, program updates, and further activity information to help inform your 2023 calendar.
Thank you for your continued support and interest in our CSIRO science. We look forward to bringing you more inspiring stories in the months to come!
In 2023, Generation STEM will continue to widen its reach to inspire more students across NSW. Part of this growth includes the recent expansion of the STEM Community Partnerships Program to Year 7 and 8 students and its launch in Queanbeyan- Palerang and Yass Valley.
Generation STEM programs also operate in the Illawarra-Shoalhaven region, Central Coast, Moree and in the Central West region. Generation STEM Links has expanded to include all NSW-based businesses/organisation.
This year, Deadly in Generation STEM will introduce the I2S2 program to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge through hands-on inquiry-based projects, increasing student engagement and achievement in STEM.
