STEM portal

The STARportal is a new national database that matches students with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities available in their local region.  It allows students, teachers and parents to go online and connect with STEM events such as workshops, educational programs and online competitions.  The Government has invested over $275,000 in the STARportal, which was developed by the Office of the Chief Scientist and Engineers Australia and was backed by some of Australia’s largest employers.
