Our tailor made STEM tours itineraries are linked to the Australian and New Zealand, Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics curriculum.
Participating in a Student Horizons STEM tour gives your students exciting opportunities to explore a broad range of STEM ideas and research, including workshops, industry related guided tours, seminars, simulations and hands-on experiments.
As our technological world is developing at an increasing speed, STEM has become a core part of our everyday lives. The future of jobs is changing as technology advances continually impact the way we live our lives.
Your students may develop such passion for STEM to one day potentially pursue a job in a STEM field!
Our tours are all custom designed to suit your teaching needs, budget and length of tour – all will be packed with inspirational and exciting activities which may include, but are not limited to:
Sydney and/or Canberra STEM tours are not complete without some down time for the students to explore!
While in Sydney, uncover the history and explore the sites of down town Sydney, climb one of the most iconic bridges in the world, take a behind the scenes tour of the Sydney Opera House (don’t forget to take a photo of your touring group on the Opera House Steps with the bridge in the background!), visit the world famous Bondi Beach (and maybe have a chat to the iconic Bondi Rescue Lifeguards!), ride a rollercoaster at Luna Park, or hop aboard one of Sydney’s harbour ferries for a breathtaking trip to Taronga Zoo or Manly.
While in Canberra, balance your students STEM learnings with a deeper understanding of our National identity. Increase your students’ knowledge of how the nation is governed by a tour of Parliament House, pay respects to those fallen in the World Wars at the Australian War Memorial, visit some of the many galleries and museums or have the go behind the scenes at Australia’s premier elite sports precinct, the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS).
The tour was one of the best experiences of my life. I would not have been able to cram so many wonderful workshops, university visits/talks and the sights if I had organised the trip.
