The Wickham STEM Centre (also known locally as the Maths and Science Centre of Excellence) provides Aboriginal students in Years 4 to 6, with engaging, hands-on activities that focus on STEM learning (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). The centre is located in the STEM Lab of Wickham Primary school and operates on Monday and Thursday afternoons for around 20 - 25 students.
The learning content is provided by a dedicated Program Coordinator and team of specialist tutors. The centre makes many connections with the local area, linking the learning activities to the local context of Wickham. The centre encourages students to become the problem solvers of the future and consider pursuing careers in the field of maths and science.
Rio Tinto has supported the program since it was established in 2012.
