Event description

Description

Earlier this year, Australia's Chief Scientist released Optimising STEM Industry-School Partnerships: Inspiring Australia's Next Generation - a report outlining the importance of meaningful, structured programs that engage secondary school students with STEM industry. Connecting industries reliant on STEM skills with secondary schools is one way to support young people to view STEM-based careers as important, rewarding and filled with opportunity.

To discuss these ideas, In2science is excited to announce a forum to explore goals and best practice for potential collaborations between STEM industry and schools. The In2science Industry Schools Partnerships Forum is an opportunity to hear from industry professionals, STEM educators and others about industry-partnered programs.

Our keynote speaker for the evening is Sally-Ann Williams, Engineering Community and Outreach Manager at Google.

Our panelists include:

- Dr. Amanda Caples, Victoria's Lead Scientist

- Felicity Furey, Swinburne University of Technology; Co-founder of Power of Engineering and Machinam

- Troy Waller, Learning Delivery Specialist at Microsoft

- Kate Torii, Policy Fellow at the Mitchell Institute

- Dr. Linda McIver, John Monash Science School; Founder and Executive Director, Australian Data Science Education Institute

Teachers who attend the event may use it as part of their Professional Development under the Australian Professional Standards for Teaching (APST) 7.4 Engage with Professional Teaching Networks and Broader Communities. In2science will provide certificates of participation for teachers who wish to do so.

The venue is accessible via ramp and a lift. Refreshments will be provided.

The event will also be live-streamed via the In2science Facebook page for regional schools and teachers, and others who can't be at the venue on the night.

RSVP below and stay tuned for more panelist details!
