Restoring the focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects in our schools is about ensuring young Australians are equipped with the necessary skills for the economy of the future.

The Australian Government is committed to encouraging interest and curiosity in STEM subjects and demonstrating that there are great careers built on science, engineering, maths and technology.

The Government will respond to the recommendations made by the Chief Scientist in his paper Science, technology, engineering and mathematics: Australia's future.

The Government's response will address the need to improve the STEM skills pipeline through the education and training sector, improve industry competitiveness, strengthen our international engagement and improve our research.
