STEM & Future Skills Program
Techtrails is a full day STEM incursion for Western Australian secondary schools designed to generate passion, excitement and interest to inspire young people to consider careers in technology and science. Our focus is on showcasing the amazing women working in these fields, and to empower young people, and particularly girls to see themselves in these careers.
Together with the school we determine the most appropriate STEM and industry focus themes for the particular student cohort. We then leverage our extensive industry networks to source some of Western Australia’s most inspirational professionals and entrepreneurs to talk to students about their career journey, what their job is actually like and how students can turn their passion into a successful future career.
Real People, Real Impact.
Since inception the program has reached over 4,500 students throughout Western Australia. The feedback from students and teachers has been overwhelmingly positive, with 75% of students reporting an increased interest in STEM.
Importantly, 87% of students also noted that they understood how these STEM skills are used in the workplace, as compared to just 37% before the Techtrails incursion.
With our Techtrails Online program we can reach even more students, and have already had over 900 enrollments in the first 6 months since the online learning modules were launched.
Kalamunda Senior High School
“Exposing our students to real careers and the wider possibilities out there gives relevance to our STEAM education initiative, and ties in with our school values. Feedback from students about the day was overwhelmingly positive – there was a real buzz amongst our Year 9’s after the techtrails day and we are looking forward to building on this excitement.”
Mr Ian Masarei – Principal of Esperance Senior High School
The women from WiTWA are just top class. We need to let everyone know about how amazing this was for our girls and follow up with them again in the future.
