The Office of the Chief Scientist has released the first national STEM Programme Index designed to introduce schools and parents to a wide range of programmes to help Australia’s youth make a future in STEM.

Freely accessible to anyone, the Index includes over 250 active programmes, catering to hundreds of schools and many thousands of students across Australia.

In a huge vote of confidence in the 3P Learning team, the Australian Government has included our flagship resource, Mathletics, and our work with CSIRO on 3D online education as part of the index.

The release comes after the Government’s push to restore the focus on STEM in schools and ensuring Australia’s young adults are equipped with the necessary skills for the economy of the future.

“The opportunities of the future will be made through STEM, for Australia and the Australians with the skills to thrive through change,” Australia’s Chief Scientist Professor Ian Chubb said.

“We all have a stake in great STEM education, and we ought to cooperate in bringing it about.”

Andrew Smith, 3P Learning Australia CEO, said how vital STEM would be in shaping Australia’s future.

“The future of Australia’s children and the future of the country as a whole depends on STEM education being readily available to all.

“We are pleased to be a part of what is an excellent resource for both parents and teachers to help educate our future.”
