STEM in the Territory Strategy 2018-2022

Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) underpin every aspect of the world we live in, and it is the innovative and emerging technologies and industries from these fields which underpin the global economy.

STEM in the Territory is addressed in the Australian Curriculum through the learning areas of Science, Technologies and Mathematics, and through the general capabilities of Numeracy, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Ethical Understanding, Personal and Social Capability, and Critical and Creative Thinking.

The STEM in the Territory Strategy 2018–2022 is a response to the National STEM School Education Strategy and will guide and support schools to:

  • prepare students for life-long learning and work by supporting quality STEM education opportunities
  • ensure all young people in the NT are equipped with coding skills as an emerging essential literacy
  • implement professional learning opportunities for teachers and trainers in STEM education and pedagogy
  • expand enterprise education and innovation programs so students receive advice and training in newly emerging industries.
