05/08/2015: Parent STEM Information Night, Wednesday12 August 2015

According to the Department of Further Education, Employment, Science and Technology, demand in South Australia for people in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) occupations such as Engineering, Environmental Scientists and ICT Systems Analysts is set to increase dramatically over the next ten years. In order to meet the needs of these growing career areas, we will need graduates with high-level skills in the sciences and mathematics.

To explore the benefits of continuing with studies in Science and Mathematics and provide information about pathways towards STEM careers, a STEM Information Evening will be held.

Venue: George Cresswell Hall, Unley High School

Date: Wednesday 12 August 2015

Time: 6:00pm until 7:15pm

At this evening, there will be a series of short presentations from current and past Unley High School students as well as representatives from University STEM faculties, a STEM industry and The Royal Institute of Australia (RiAus). These formal presentations will finish at about 6:40pm at which point there will be the opportunity for parents, caregivers and students to speak with individual presenters and ask questions while enjoying finger food prepared and served by the UHS Stage 1 Food and Hospitality class.
