In2science and Engineers Australia are proud to be hosting an online forum to discuss how we can continue to provide secondary school students with high quality experiences in science, technology, engineering and mathematics in the current COVID-19 climate. This panel will focus on schools that are already facing educational disadvantage, and how we as secondary school educators, the higher education sector and industry can support these initiatives.
Learn about real and tangible tools, techniques and approaches that can be implemented within schools to help students navigate the demands and opportunities of their STEM-based future. This session will also explore how the higher education sector and industry can use their knowledge and resources to build connections with schools and students during this time.
This session will feature a keynote address from astrophysicist and Australian Government Women in STEM Ambassador, Professor Lisa Harvey-Smith, as well as the following esteemed panellists:
- The Hon Prof John Brumby (Moderator): La Trobe University Chancellor and Former Victorian Premier
