STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. STEM integrates these disciplines into a cohesive learning model and teaches students computational thinking focused on real-world applications of problem solving.
The BreseightGroup supports the STEM education of young Australians as it plays a critical role in Australia’s ability to innovate and be a competitive force globally. We need students who are curious, problem solvers and creative who can address complex issues, build our infrastructure and allow Australia to grow as a nation.
Two-thirds of Australia’s STEM workforce have vocational education training (VET) credentials and one-third university diplomas. Whichever approach you choose one thing is certain – students with STEM skills are more likely to find well-paying, engaging and rewarding careers.
