Could your son or daughter be the next game changer?
STEM is a curriculum based on Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
Right now, Australia is lagging behind in these four critical areas. STEM Nation sees it as incredibly important that talented students in these four key disciplines are educated and encouraged, using a hands-on approach that connects directly to real-world industry applications. That’s the ‘what’.
Australia’s critical need for advanced and high-tech STEM workers to meet the demands of an innovative and technological future, is the ‘why’.
But, a vital cog in STEM Nation’s world-leading, education process is having parents engaged and alongside their children, boosting their skills, confidence and, ultimately, career chances. STEM and parents - turning young talent into tomorrow’s global pioneers.

STEM Sista and STEM Mista are programs developed to nurture boys and girls with an aptitude and interest in science, technology, engineering or manufacturing. This is especially important for girls who have traditionally been steered away from STEM based professions.
If you have a son or daughter who displays great enthusiasm and talent in STEM subjects, this program will allow them to fully explore their potential.
