Engineers Australia delivers several STEM based activities for teachers and students across NSW.
Over the past few years Engineers Australia has worked with Engineering Studies teachers in the Newcastle area to develop a program and resources to assist the teachers in the delivery of the NSW Engineering Studies Syllabus.
Resources have now been developed in collaboration with the Engineering Studies teachers for use by the teachers.
Student programs include programs designed purely for female students like Girl’s Talk and Experience IT while others incorporate all students, Discover Engineering, Autumn Engineering Program, and the Engineering Summer School.
