Share your STEM story during #scienceweek

stem-profiles.pngAs part of National Science Week (11-19 August 2018), the Department of Industry Innovation and Science is joining forces with CSIRO to promote the range of exciting careers that come from pursuing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects. You can join in, too!

To truly demonstrate the diversity of STEM, we invite all STEM professionals in Australia to share what they love about working in STEM through social media.

The easiest way to get involved is to answer the question, ‘What do you love about working in STEM?’. You can make a quick video, take a selfie of yourself at work, or even tweet about what you love about working in STEM and share it through social media.

Make sure you use the hashtag #scienceweek, and tag us on Twitter @ScienceGovAu on your social media posts so that everyone can see your story. To showcase just how varied and interesting STEM careers are, encourage your friends and colleagues to participate, too – the more people that join in, the better.

Five of the Department’s inspiring staff in STEM-related jobs will share what they love about working in STEM. Follow us on Twitter @ScienceGovAu to see the short video STEM stories from:

  1. Dr Megan Clark AC, Head of the Australian Space Agency
  2. Jane Urquhart, Acting Deputy Secretary, Department of Industry, Innovation and Science
  3. Dr Bruce Warrington, Chief Metrologist, National Measurement Institute
  4. Dr Amber Beavis, Assistant Manager, Australian Square Kilometre Array Office
  5. Dr Lynn Bloomfield, Senior Patent Examiner, Intellectual Property Policy Unit, Department of Industry, Innovation and Science

You can find more information about how to engage with this social media campaign via CSIRO’s social media channels, including Facebook and Twitter.
