MEET STEM HUB'S GEEK TEAM .

If Australia ever hopes to turn out the scientists, technology specialists, engineers and mathematicians it will need in the coming decades, we need to stop the declining interest in STEM subjects. STEM Hub is working with industry, government and educators to build programs and educational resources to increase the engagement and confidence of students learning STEM.

We're also working on ways to dispel the old myth about STEM: that a "science brain" or a "math brain" is something you're born with.
