what spacer what we hope to achieve

How often have you heard the phrase "Australia the lucky country"? But is that phrase true for all today? Our youth rely on older Australians guiding them wisely in their senior school subject selection but in many cases we fail them. Too many students drop mathematics and science at senior secondary school claiming the subject is too hard or it's boring.

To help alleviate the decline we offer a practical hands on approach, encouraging students to take a greater interest in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

Our ultimate goal is to see Australian students using the STEM skills by eventually filling Australian positions in:

  • Construction
  • Defence
  • Health
  • Horticulture
  • Manufacturing
  • Mining and other allied positions

We acknowledge that Australia needs a balance of trade and professional people. Our youth need to be encouraged to step up and be given that chance. Are you prepared to help us help them?

If you are willing, then let's talk!
