Issue 02: December 2022

Welcome to the last 2022 edition

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.
