The Australian Defence Force and Questacon have partnered to deliver a professional learning program for primary school teachers, Engineering is Elementary, from 2019 to 2022. These Engineering is Elementary workshops reach out to around 1,000 primary school teachers in hundreds of schools across Australia. By creating awareness of the application of STEM to real world problems, Engineering is Elementary inspires students to consider careers in STEM fields.
Australia’s future as a knowledge economy depends on emerging generations being engaged with foundation skills in STEM.
