Get involved in a local initiative to inspire and build your workforce of tomorrow

Join us to share your local challenges and find out about how you can be involved!

As a valuable member of the Blacktown community you are invited to join us for a workshop to learn about Generation STEM, discuss your ideas on local challenges and find out how you or your organisation can be involved.

The Generation STEM initiative aims to attract, support, retain and train NSW school students in STEM, into further education and employment. The first program launched under Generation STEM is the STEM Community Partnerships Program, where students participate in STEM inquiry-based projects to address challenges faced by the local community and are connected to local STEM businesses, providing valuable insight into local STEM pathways.

You are invited to join our workshop on this exciting initiative in its second year in the Blacktown area. At this workshop we will identify local challenges for students to address in 2022 and present opportunities for you to be involved, including mentoring teachers, hosting site visits, delivering a masterclass or providing work experience opportunities. The time commitment is flexible and there is no cost to participate.

In previous years, students developed innovative solutions to local challenges including Heat Stress and Transport, and Waste Management.

The 2019 Showcase video, our 2020 webpage Showcase and information about the 2021 Virtual Showcase can be found at our website.
