Stellar STEM is a series of interactive workshops held at pre-selected low socio-economic schools in Brisbane, Ipswich, and Logan. Our aim is to inspire and engage female students to participate in STEM activities and careers.
The program is presented by a panel of women who work in STEM and is delivered in three parts: a question and answer panel, four specialist hands-on workshops running on a cycle for smaller groups of students, and the firing of a hybrid rocket motor on the school oval.
We are targeting key influencers of girls, teachers and parents, via a digital STEM Survival Kit to combat several key barriers to entry into STEM. Participants will be able to experience the real-world applications of STEM skills exhibited in dynamic careers and be inspired by women in STEM.
