The Day of STEM looks like a good idea. It’s an online program rather than a single day, designed to open students eyes to career paths in STEM
The Day of STEM is a national initiative … to raise the National IQ for STEM and Cyber Science. The program introduces and inspires all secondary and tertiary education students to pursue STEM careers and build the skills that will open up their future and connect them to the in-demand digital workforce.
The Day is free and is described as “a powerful and exciting way for students to see and experience the benefit of following a cyber and STEM education pathway”. It’s all done online via a well-established platform. The idea is that teachers run the program in class or as homework.
Program 3 within the Day of STEM platform explores the careers of women STEM leaders who are at the forefront of the industry. The program explores six dynamic female role models and their individual career journeys with companies on the cutting-edge of technological innovation in Australia.
