Conference details

The focus for this conference is to learn how to initiate and build student agency and leadership through the shared experiences of educators and students in running broad-ranging STEAM projects in collaboration with external organisations. 

Students develop 21st century skills such as self-efficacy and problem-solving, from being immersed in projects. Facilitating the organisation and operation of these projects is not easy, and so this conference is bringing together a wide-range of teachers, students and industry professionals - who will share their insights, tips and traps, from their experiences in managing these projects firsthand.

We also have talks from leading scientists and industry professionals and workshops from external organisations looking to collaborate with schools.


Also on offer is the opportunity to win seed money for your school’s future STEAM projects through our ‘Project Pitch’ session - whereby you and your students can pitch an idea for a STEAM project through industry collaboration.

Keynote Speaker

Leah Heiss is a Melbourne-based designer and Monash University academic working at the nexus of design, health and technology. Her process is deeply collaborative, and she works with experts from nanotechnology through to manufacturing. She is dedicated to the idea that design can radically improve the development of wearable health technologies, systems and services. 

Through collaborative projects, Leah has brought human centred design to technologies for hearing loss, diabetes and pre-diabetes, cardiovascular disease, gut disease and loneliness. Her wearable technologies include jewellery to administer insulin, cardiac monitoring jewellery, swallowable devices to detect disease, and stretchable sensors for heart health and post-operative monitoring.
