• Stem 4

Welcome to STEM 4 Sunraysia 2021 Event Page

STEM 4 Sunraysia is the biggest Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) competition in the Sunraysia region. With students from a range of local schools coming together for this event, it is a fantastic opportunity for students to learn and engage their STEM knowledge and skills.

Being given 1 of 4 “real world problems” from local businesses, the students must then work together to think of an “out of the box” solution and present this idea in a “Shark Tank” Style pitch.
Students are also treated to a fantastic STEM based presentation by key note speakers alongside mentoring through the two day event.
