The effective teaching of STEM subjects is vital to Australia’s prosperity and equity. STEM education in non-metropolitan areas faces unique challenges – from reliance on out-of-field teachers to limited resourcing. This project will review existing literature and datasets and consult with stakeholders including educators and policymakers to inform future STEM education policy in regional NSW.
