Build a world designed for humanity with our STEM programs for schools.
STEM x Play: Primary School Program
Gender stereotypes in STEM start forming at the age of 5. We are piloting a STEM program for primary school to address girls' confidence and interest in STEM and address the key intersecting influences of teachers and parents.
Girls in STEM Days
Previously Young Women in STEM day, we invite teachers and students to be immersed in our world of design, creation, and innovation with our on-campus Girls in STEM days. Read more and register for our events on 29 May and 10 October.
Girls in STEM Program
We are now running two separate programs for High School students focusing on different year groups.
We are piloting a multi-touchpoint, in-curriculum program built around project-based learning. Through consultation with teachers and experts in STEM disciplines we are designing projects in areas from Cyber Security to Drone Technology. Students will undertake the design thinking process and apply STEM skills to real-world problems, with the support of UTS and industry mentors.
We are currently working with a select group of schools. If you are interested in finding more about this program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our new program reflects the needs of the students and provide an opportunity to have more in-depth conversations with current UTS students and industry professionals as part of a fun-filled interactive day. These single day visits have two elements:
STEM Circles – a workshop inspired by the World Café method with small booths facilitated by these mentors will provide a chance for students to voice concerns, ask questions and receive clarification on a specific STEM field within a supportive environment.
Activities – Engineering and IT-focused activities will be run during each visit to inspire confidence and interest in STEM and provide real-world applications.
Our Girls in STEM primary and high school programs are proudly sponsored by:
It was really exciting to see the students naturally wanting to engage in problem-solving – because that's essentially all engineering is, solving problems.
