Millmerran State School students on track with STEM
The Inland Rail Skills Academy was proud to support a team of students from Millmerran State School at the second annual STEM on Track challenge at the University of Southern Queensland’s Toowoomba Campus earlier this month.
Millmerran State School students, who ranked an impressive third on the day and won three of the individual challenges, competed against teams of year 9 and 10 students from 30 other schools from across the region.
Challenges included future power and railway bridge building, with Inland Rail staff lending a hand and showcasing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) careers to the next generation.
Designed to raise STEM awareness and build capability, STEM on Track supports the University of Newcastle to deliver Science and Engineering Challenge events in communities along the Inland Rail alignment between Brisbane and Albury.
The Inland Rail Skills Academy has gone from strength to strength since launching in 2019, with nearly 2,000 participants taking part in a variety of programs along the project’s alignment across Victoria, New South Wales, and Queensland. Find out more here.
