Encouraging science literacy in early high school years

Targeting years 7 and 8 students

About

 

The NYSF STEM Explorer Program is a collaborative initiative between the South Australian Department of Education and Child (DECD) and the NYSF, and will run for the first time in Adelaide in July 2017.  This program is supported by funding from the National Innovation and Science Agenda (NISA).

The NYSF STEM Explorer Program involves a mix of hands-on STEM experiences, talks and workshops, as well as social activities. The central goal of the program is to foster an interest in STEM fields by demonstrating to students that “doing science” doesn’t necessarily just happen in the lab or classroom, but in a variety of ways and careers. The program also aims to develop the leadership skills of participants to become STEM ambassadors. Student participants in the NYSF STEM Explorer Program are in years 7 and 8, and selected by the SA DECD. They are supported during the program by SA DECD pre-service teachers, and NYSF alumni, encouraging their continued engagement with the organisation and its activities.

Location: Adelaide, South Australia
