TIAC STEM Report Finalised
Date Published: 17/07/2014

OPTIMISING STEM EDUCATION IN WESTERN AUSTRALIAN SCHOOLS

The Technology and Industry Advisory Council (TIAC) is pleased to present the outcomes of the above project based on a pilot study in 2011 and detailed research in 2012-13:

The Report is now available on the TIAC Website in two parts.

These reports reflect TIAC’s strong belief that without a strategic strengthening of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) education in our primary and secondary schools, WA will not optimise the skills mix and innovation required for a productive and competitive economy.  It will also be difficult to optimise government service delivery, the health sector, research, and employment of young people.

The Science Education Committee through TIAC would like to acknowledge the invaluable support for this project from consultation with Western Australia’s education sectors, teacher professional associations and education service providers as well as the contribution and involvement from industry supporters of STEM education. Submission of the report has resulted in a number of discussions with Government agencies and these are continuing.
