Building a community of like-minded people and organisations in the R& E sector committed to inspiring young people to pursue studies and careers in science, technology, engineering and maths


Encouraging the younger generation to pursue studies and careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) is vital for the prosperity of Australia.

In our increasingly digitised world, these are the skills our nation needs to drive innovation and economic growth, but there is a huge shortage of appropriately skilled people. The problem begins in high school with fewer and fewer students taking science in Years 11 and 12.

AARNet customers, including universities, CSIRO, GLAMS (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) and K-12 Schools, are involved in myriad innovative STEM outreach programs to help address this problem.

We are committed to supporting these programs in a variety of ways, by enabling access to high-quality online and digital experiences, fostering collaborations, mentoring, promotion and sponsorship.

Our goal is to inspire boys and girls at AARNet-connected K-12 schools to study STEM subjects at a tertiary level.
