STEM school partnership (science, technology, engineering and mathematics)

This research established and piloted a framework to evaluate the effectiveness of the STEM enrichment programs.

This outcomes-based evaluation framework established a baseline to be used to assess the future effectiveness of STEM enrichment programs on an annual basis over the longer term.

It concentrated research on programs funded through the STEM Schools Partnership (SSP).  The SSP funds the delivery of science technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) enrichment programs to schools in the Surat Basin. It aims to stimulate interest in studying STEM subjects at school and increase awareness and knowledge of trade and professional career opportunities in the CSG/LNG industry and associated supply chain.
