China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is expanding its research collaboration with universities outside of China. Since 2007, the PLA has sponsored more than 2,500 military scientists and engineers to study abroad and has developed relationships with researchers and institutions across the globe.
Fewer women than men pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), despite girls outperforming boys at school in the relevant subjects.
This discussion paper has been provided to briefly describe the key issues and areas that will be considered in the development of the 10-year plan to boost women in STEM and to provide the questions for broad consultation with stakeholders.
This paper aims to illuminate the shared goals between open science and the study of teams by focusing on science team activities (data management, methods, algorithms, and outputs) as focal objects for further combined study.
Working with teachers and their students, the Water Literacies Project provided an ideal opportunity to explore a range of pedagogical approaches and practices which connect students to their everyday world, both now and in their possible futures, through place-based learning.
This literature and policy review outlines the complex context related to STEM learning and focuses on student outcomes, the teacher workforce and the curriculum.
In which journal a scientist publishes is considered one of the most crucial factors determining their career. The underlying common assumption is that only the best scientists manage to publish in a highly selective tier of the most prestigious journals. However, data suggests that the...
If the Australian workforce is to be prepared for the future, science technology engineering and mathematics practices must be embedded across the entire curriculum, according to this report.
Girls are taking up STEM subjects at a much lower rate than girls, partly due to gender bias in the community, and it could hurt their chances in the job market down the track
This report on why many girls do not pursue study and careers in STEM has recommended a range of initiatives and programs to encourage girls’ participation in these subjects at school to better equip them to pursue careers in what are the fastest growing occupations...
This report characterises Australia’s current climate science capability and identifies how well the climate science sector is positioned to meet current and future demands for weather and climate knowledge.
This research explores the idea of whether the student placement process — where an individual is placed in a workplace to hone their new skills — can contribute to innovation in the host organisation.
This article outlines a comprehensive study of computer scientists using Twitter and their tweeting behavior concerning the sharing of web links.
This report represents a two-year research project funded by the Office of the Chief Scientist to improve student participation in STEM-related disciplines by encouraging school and industry collaboration.
This report has been produced by the ALIA Australian Public Library Alliance as an advocacy document to show what can be achieved through local government investment and library staff skills and creativity.
ACARA has released its fifth National Assessment Program (NAP) – Science Literacy report. The report shows Australian Year 6 students’ science literacy levels have remained static.
