Announcing the Day of STEM – Education Advisory Board

LifeJourney is pleased to formally announce the Day of STEM – Education Advisory Board. The Education Advisory Board aims to improve and accelerate the effectiveness of the Day of STEM platform in Australia and is comprised of a cross-section of the teachers, education leaders, and facilitators of STEM programs across Australia.

The Education Advisory Board meets quarterly to provide review and feedback on the Day of STEM platform and programs with a specific lens on curriculum, subject-matter relevance and specific state and local contexts. If you’re a teacher or STEM proponent interested in joining the Day of STEM – Education Advisory Board or would like to nominate someone for the 2018 school year, please send an email to Renee Hoareau at [email protected]
