Inspiring students to a future in STEM
At UOW, we are committed to collaborating with high schools to increase awareness in students, particularly females, in STEM & Entrepreneurial education programs.
Australian businesses of the future will require people with STEM (science, technology engineering and mathematics) skills, and those without this knowledge will likely struggle.
The festival aims to inspire students to peruse a future in STEM and the innovation ecosystem. By participating, students will be exposed to a range of hands on workshops, activities in the STEM facilities on campus such as the Science Centre and the Illawarra Flame House, plus entrepreneurial start-ups in iAccelerate. It will empower, educate and increase their self-confidence – preparing this next generation with the tools to succeed.
