The New South Wales Aboriginal Education Consultative Group Inc. (NSW AECG Inc.) in conjunction with Transurban|Westconnex will be conducting a STEAM Youth Development Camp for Aboriginal students. To commence the process the NSW AECG Inc. is calling for Expressions of Interest from schools with Aboriginal students in the nominated years. The camp will run over two different dates; the first for Years 5 & 6 (21st to 23rd November) and the second for Years 7 to 11 (28th to 30th November).
The camp will contribute to creating the generational change required for students to achieve better outcomes at school and access post-school learning and employment pathways, in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. Camps such as these assist in opening up careers of the future for Aboriginal students.
The NSW AECG Inc. is committed and actively involved in supporting and raising the academic achievement of Aboriginal students. We aim to empower students to be active learners in their education and training by providing opportunities to develop skills in leadership roles within their schools and communities. This camp will look at opportunities that can inspire and motivate students who may be thinking of a career in STEAM or who simply want to challenge themselves.
Schools or Parents/Caregivers need to be completed Expressions of Interest (EOI) on behalf of students to attend the camp. EOIs is to be completed through a google forms process using the following link:
EOIs must be received by COB, Thursday 20th October 2022. EOIs will not be received after this date.
The maximum applications per school is 10. Schools near the WestConnex motorway, Sydney are encouraged to apply and will be given priority to attend the camp.
