We recently thanked our WAMC STEM Program sponsors at out August Luncheon, The Growing Gap: Supply and Demand of Energy Transition Metals. Barry Upton, WAMC Education Engagement Committee Lead, Andrea Conte’s, STEM Smart Founder and Natalie Taylor, WAMC President, presented the awards.
Andrea delivers the WAMC STEM Program, an in-school program targeted predominantly at year 9 secondary students. The program encourages them to explore the value of studying STEM subjects through Years 11 and 12 and the many opportunities that are created by doing so. The in-class sessions focus on robotics and software programming with an emphasis on having fun but at the same time gaining valuable knowledge. Without the STEM Smart sponsors this program would not be possible.
Certificate of Appreciation from the WA Mining Club were given to:
DANV Tools, Johnex Explosives, PitnPortal, RUC, IGO and Northern Star Resources.
Contact the committee to enquire about how your company can get involved in changing the perceptions young people have around mining.
