The Governor’s School STEM Awards (the Awards) were established in 2015 to recognise the support and commitment of school principals and leadership teams in developing their schools' science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education programs. In doing so, the Awards aim to raise awareness of the importance of STEM education among school leadership, and incentivise them to support their teachers in undertaking STEM initiatives.
The Awards identify high-quality outcomes and approaches in STEM subjects as well as in the way STEM teaching is integrated across learning areas.
Congratulations to all participating schools and thanks to The Honourable Kim Beazley AC, Governor of Western Australia, for championing this initiative celebrating school achievements in STEM.
