STEM Centres enhance and enrich the learning outcomes and capabilities of Indigenous students who have interests and/or an aptitude towards Maths, Science, Technology and Engineering learning areas.

The after-school program provides hands-on learning experiences, challenges and inquiry tasks.

Students experience “hands on” problem based investigations that develop inquiry skills and content knowledge. Learning activities include conducting experiments, engineering and mathematical challenges, collaborative tasks and exploring new technologies. Students meet and work with a wide range of people engaged in STEM related vocations to raise awareness of future career pathways.

Students learn about Indigenous perspectives, go on excursions and camps, and learn from experts. These academic and extra-curricular opportunities inspire student learning and curiosity, foster potential, and broaden career interests in STEM.
