About The Event

Join us for an exciting opportunity to get together to learn about how STEM Learning is changing. We will share with you our unique, contemporary and productive approach to science education and its relevance and application to the recently launched Women in STEM Decadal’s Plan - Pathways to STEM Equity’s mission.

This event will be expertly led by Australia’s Inaugural Women in STEM Ambassador - Professor Lisa Harvey-Smith. Lisa recently announced, "After 15 years of conducting research into the mysteries of the universe and developing some of the world's most technologically advanced astrophysical observatories I am now taking on a new challenge: to help smash barriers to inclusion in STEM and to create a stronger, more inclusive STEM sector fit to drive Australia's economic success in the coming decades."

The Event

Research has stated that within the next decade 75% of all jobs and careers will require STEM skills. So what is being done, to ensure that our students are receiving a comprehensive and relevant STEM education, not only to support their own prospects but also work collaboratively to drive our nation’s economy into the 22nd century? How can 21st Century relevant education attract, diversely talented students to challenge their capabilities and strive for high performance?

This community event will focus on STEM learning, education and STEM careers beyond 2025. A discrimination between STEM as a subject and STEM Learning will be addressed. The federally developed Women in STEM Decadal Plan’s (WiSDP)underpinning vision is based on attract, retain and progress individuals into STEM career pathways within an equitable society and working environment. At Kent Street Senior High School, the CoRE Learning Model has been developed on STEM Learning with a mission to attract students into the resources industry and other STEM careers. It has been successful and this outcome and its pathways is the highlight of the panel discussion. The discussion will be led by Professor Lisa Harvey-Smith.

The diverse panel will include a current CoRE student, CoRE Alumni, WASM Alumni and an industry representative who is passionate about relevant and applicable STEM learning. During this discussion, ‘the attract’ portion of the Plan’s vision will be the focus. The importance of role models (educators, community, parents and industry networks) combined with CoRE’s contemporary STEM teaching- learning philosophy and its impacts will be presented and evaluated.

CoRE Alumni also serve to strengthen the organic development of the CoRE Learning Model. The skills, knowledge and network capabilities gained from this resource further reinforces the ‘attraction’ component of the plan’s purpose and vision. This integration into the CoRE Learning Model highlights and reinforces the need for quality, progressive and purposeful STEM education pathways for all students to ensure a strong 21st- 22nd century STEM workforce.

This is an interactive session, so we encourage you to please submit questions you'd like to ask Lisa on the night to:
