Science Minister Dave Kelly and Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery today launched the McGowan Government's STEM campaign to ensure young Western Australians are ready for the jobs of the future. The campaign message 'Take 2 STEM' aims to encourage more WA students to select at least two STEM subjects - Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths - especially those entering Years 11 and 12 or those considering a vocational pathway. The campaign also speaks to parents and school staff as research shows they are students' key influencers when selecting subjects. Part of the Government's State STEM Skills Strategy, Take 2 STEM includes a focus on increasing participation in under-represented groups, including girls and women, people from lower socio-economic backgrounds and Aboriginal students. The campaign will initially run from June 8 until August, the decision-making period for upper school and vocational education subjects.
