STEM Innovation Experience

The STEM Innovation Experience (STEMIE) aims to increase STEM engagement in schools and increase awareness of STEM in the wider community. This is achieved through students’ participation in a series of STEM-based tasks linked to curriculum.  

STEMIE has three major components - a Learning Phase, the STEMIE Regional Showcase, which then culminates with the STEMIE State Final.

STEM Girls

A learning and networking opportunity for Year 11 girls studying Science and Mathematics who wish to explore STEM careers. STEM Girls aims to support young women to continue studying Science and Mathematics through their schooling and into university.

The girls will be invited to participate in two inquiry based learning days at UniSA ­- a STEM Girls Networking Dinner and a full day Industry Tour.

The ConocoPhillips Science Experience is a three day program on Wednesday 21 – Friday 23 August 2019

The ConocoPhillips Science Experience is a national program and will provide an immersive STEM Inquiry Based Learning program for students to work as a scientist to learn skills and knowledge to be able to identify solutions to a big question proposed to them. The program in a passive solar engineering context provides an immersive, inquiry based learning integrated STEM approach to design a sustainable energy house for a developing country.
