From end-of-year showcases and virtual work experiences to delivering our first Deadly in Generation STEM Immersion program, 2022 was yet another eventful year.
It was also one of growth. Generation STEM has expanded into new areas, such as the Central Coast, Central West, Illawarra and Moree, and Generation STEM Links is now available to businesses across all of NSW.
Other exciting activities include Generation STEM Links’ first Industry Roundtable event in Newcastle. It brought together tertiary education providers, local industries, and government bodies for a morning of networking and discussion.
The STEM Community Partnerships Program also hosted 10 showcases across Western Sydney and the Central Coast over the past six weeks. This was the first time since 2019 that students, teachers, parents, council and industry partners have been able to get together face-to-face and celebrate everyone’s hard work.
As always, we are thankful to our partners for your support of the program. Please contact the team if you would like to get involved, or feel free to forward this email to others in your network.
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
In early November, Generation STEM Links brought together tertiary education providers, local industries and government bodies to share ideas and discuss how students can have better insights into industry practices. The outcome? Tangible next steps to improve outcomes for students and businesses. Registrations for Roundtable 2.0 will open in early 2023.
In 2023, Generation STEM will continue to widen its reach to inspire more young students. The STEM Community Partnerships Program will be offered to Year 7 and 8 students and will also launch in Queanbeyan-Palerang and Yass Valley. If you would like to participate or find out more, please contact the team.
