STEM Industry School Partnership Project (SISP)

An estimated 75% of jobs in the future will require STEM skills - how can we develop a workforce that can meet this increased demand for STEM skills?

Funded by the NSW Department of Education, the STEM Industry School Partnership Program (SISP) matches schools in each region with an industry partner and technology program. 

The program provides students in years 5 to 8 in regional areas with age appropriate STEM skills and pathways to STEM jobs. In 2018, RDA Southern Inland, RDA Hunter and RDA Central West piloted the program. In 2019, the program has been expanded to RDA Riverina and RDA Mid North Coast. 

In 2019, we will continue our partnership with Crookwell High School, its feeder schools and the Renewable Energy sector, whilst expanding to Mulwaree High School and its feeder schools.

This Project sees RDAs, industry and schools working together to focus the narrative for primary and secondary students on how STEM skills and knowledge can solve real world problems.  It introduces primary and secondary students in Crookwell and Goulburn to STEM opportunities in this booming Renewable Energy sector in the Southern Inland.

This year the following industry partners are on board:

Hook Day Crookwell 2019

On Wednesday 8th May, the second year of the STEM Industry School Partnership Program (SISP) was launched. Crookwell High School hosted five primary schools from the Upper Lachlan area to participate in ‘Hook Day’. The day was designed to introduce students from Crookwell High School and their feeder schools to the SISP Program and engage them in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).  Read more about the day here.
