Generation STEM's inaugural newsletter

It’s been a busy and eventful year for Generation STEM, and we are excited to share with our supporters – you – all the exciting activities our participants have been up to.

The STEM Community Partnerships Program now has over 1,800 participating students from over 80 high schools across Western Sydney, Central Coast and Central West regions.

Thanks to our industry supporters, the team has facilitated 24 site visits for over 400 students and 32 virtual work experience sessions this year (with more scheduled for Term 4).

Deadly in Generation STEM, which aims to promote STEM learning opportunities for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students, has delivered five Immersion Days in Moree and the Illawarra. We look forward to sharing highlights from the program in the next newsletter.

Generation STEM Links has connected with over 74 industry partners across NSW to discuss how the program can support their business through paid internships with tertiary STEM students.

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 on to others in your network.
