Launch of Girls’ Future – Our Future
The Invergowrie Foundation STEM Report 2020 Update.
In 2017, a team of researchers from the University of Melbourne and Deakin University was commissioned by the Invergowrie Foundation to conduct a study resulting in a report, Girls’ Future – Our Future; The Invergowrie Foundation STEM report.
We are pleased to announce the launch of an update to this report Girls’ Future – Our Future, The Invergowrie Foundation STEM Report 2020 Update. This follow-up project consists of an update of the 2017 report and an in-depth investigation into three particular topics – STEM Career advice, Role models in STEM and Addressing unconscious bias in primary STEM education.
The research team has delivered a report that describes good practices in Australia and elsewhere, identifies factors that help or hinder such practices, and concludes with recommendations to effectively encourage girls to consider further STEM education and STEM careers.
