Did you know that in the next decade an estimated 75 per cent of jobs in the fastest-growing industries will need skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)? However, enrolment in STEM subjects has been in steady decline in Australia. The National Innovation and Science Agenda is providing more opportunities for Young Australians to get the skills they need for the jobs of tomorrow.
