Australia’s first youth in STEM survey asked more than 2000 young people about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The survey helped create a national benchmark of young Australians’ awareness and perceptions of STEM subjects and careers.
Key metrics include:
- subject selection, awareness, interest, confidence and perceived importance of STEM skills and careers
- gendered differences in awareness and perceptions of STEM.
YouthInsight (the research arm of Student Edge) carried out the survey for our department.
