Programs and workshops for school students

UniSC collaborates with industry and government to offer dedicated programs for school-aged students, parents and teachers. Our focus is to raise aspirations, extend knowledge, and support all students to plan pathways for their future. By increasing awareness of educational and career opportunities we empower every student to strive, learn and grow, no matter their location, background or personal circumstances.


We believe STEM learning should be accessible to everyone. We give school students the opportunity to use technology, problem-solve and explore careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). By developing student, teacher, parent, and community confidence, knowledge and skills we're promoting diversity and inclusivity in STEM.

For years 4-12 and teacher professional development
