Since the early 2000s, STEM has become an important and well-known concept in global education.
The increasing demand for graduates in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) has made headlines across the world. And many countries are acting fast to fulfil the growing requirements of an evolving job market.
However, some nations have been more successful than others in increasing the uptake of STEM-related disciplines. Recent reports have highlighted a gap between the engagement with STEM in high-tech hubs such as China and Singapore when compared to Europe and Australia.
It is now evident something needs to change if we wish to remain globally competitive. At STEMmates, we seek to make our own contribution to encouraging and promoting STEM education within Australia.
