STEMed: a one day festival of education for the future, bringing together experts, advocates, industry, educators, parents and youth.
Women in Technology (WiT) is proud to launch the inaugural STEMed event to be held on Sunday 29 May at the Royal International Convention Centre, Brisbane, with the vision of building the next generation of STEM.
Research indicates that 75% of jobs in the future will require STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) skills. The workforce of the future will be remarkably different.
WiT president Fiona Hayes said STEMed is a one day festival of education for the future, bringing together experts, advocates, industry, educators, parents and youth. “Robots, entrepreneurship, coding, social media, gaming, app development and 3D printing are set to be hot topics over the action packed one day event” she said.
Open to all ages the event will be jam packed with inspiration, interactive sessions, child minding, age appropriate tech activities and a trade exhibition showcasing the latest and greatest in STEM.
Keynote speaker David Bartlett, former Premier of Tasmania, Minister for Education and Skills and Minister for Innovation, Science and Technology, serial innovator and entrepreneurial advisor is sure to wow the audience with his presentation about “Building the next generation of STEM”
