STEM outreach/engagement in Australia has changed dramatically over the last decade. All of a sudden it seems that STEM (and ‘innovation’) has become a hot topic. There are now numerous organisations that provide STEM outreach/engagement, especially in the schools context.
There have been some great initiatives over the years to collate and coordinate outreach/engagement but, overall, with limited impact.
This session will reflect briefly on where we have been, provide opportunity to share where we are at the moment, and be focused on proposing a path into the future for STEM outreach/engagement efforts.
