Queensland STEM Education Network | Delegate Sponsor
The Queensland STEM Education Network (QSEN) is a consortium of Queensland Universities providing a range of high quality programs and initiatives designed to build STEM capacity across the state. It has been instrumental in coordinating state-wide collaboration in STEM education and the sharing best practice between Universities, the Department of Education and Training, Office of the Chief Scientist, various Teacher and other key stakeholders in STEM education in Queensland. The network was launched with the aid of funding from the Federal Government’s Australian Maths and Science Partnership Program (AMSPP).
The QSEN has been raising community awareness of the importance of STEM education and STEM careers through active engagement with those in position to influence or advise school students, including parents, teachers, guidance officers, careers advisors, work experience coordinators and the broader community. Through this network, Queensland universities have been providing positive earning experience through the provision of access to expertise, resources and infrastructure.
