Full STEAM ahead – putting STEM enrolments back on track

As a Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) professional, working in and around engineering, technology and manufacturing organisations for well over a decade, I often hear about the need for more STEM educated people if we’re going to flourish as a nation in the future.

This is no surprise, as the jobs of the future are forecast to be STEM-heavy, with Microsoft suggesting in its Building Australia’s future-ready workforce report that these jobs will be in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), cyber security, the Internet of Things (IoT), augmented reality and the list goes on.
