SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
This school has given considerable thought to how to inspire students to pursue tertiary studies in STEM and STEM-related careers. Its Selective Student Placement program gives strong Stage 5 science students, with a keen interest in a science or engineering career, the chance to take part in a real research project in the University of Wollongong’s School of Physics and Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences. This allows those students to gain genuine experience being part of a real research team, preparing the student for working life. These students also participate in the University’s Master Class program, which qualifies them for an early entry interview.
