It has been a busy month for Day of STEM at Australian education conferences. Renee Hoareau presented to eager to learn teachers at:
COMVIEW 2017, Victoria University, Melbourne, November 28 – Victorian Commercial Teachers Association Conference.
Renee presented on fintech and cyber security themes contained in the Day of STEM programs highlighting topics such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and cryptography.
ACCE 2017, University of Melbourne, November 30 – Australian Centre for Careers Education.
Renee presented two well-attended sessions and the buzz was all around Day of STEM and Cyber Security careers. Career advisors travelled from regional Victoria, interstate, overseas and the audience included many educators from universities, TAFES, adult and tertiary providers.
Stuart Wright, a Kiwi educator from Waipukurau, thought the Day of STEM’s concept of online scaleable mentorship is a fantastic opportunity for young people and said ‘Day of STEM is a must for New Zealand schools’.
Renee facilitated a STEM panel of industry, educators and a student ambassador for the Day of STEM discussing ‘preparing our students for future work and how important it is to encourage our NextGen into the STEM careers of the future’.
