A PhD scholarship (3.5 years) opportunity starting early 2019 to work with industry and investigate how schools can partner with industry to raise awareness of STEM careers. The project, a collaboration between Future Makers, the Queensland Department of Education, and the Australian Catholic University integrates museum objects, industry professionals and STEM experts to promote student academic gains and scientific language and to foster more positive attitudes towards STEM subjects and careers. The main goal of the study is to develop a sustainable professional development framework through a school-community-industry partnership. The PhD candidate will work under the supervision of Associate Professor Kim Nichols and with a large ARC Linkage Project team in collaboration with the Queensland Museum to develop resources and strategies for teacher professional learning.
