Pathways into & through STEM

Australia needs 100,000 digitally skilled workers and 40,000 engineers in the next two years.

We need decisive action to attract and retain the workforce Australia needs to become a STEM-empowered force on the global stage.

ATSE’s programs are designed to build diversity and equity of access and opportunity across the STEM study and career ecosystem, to build a thriving and inclusive sector, through school, university and beyond.


We inspire and educate young people in STEM.
