Calling all 12-25 year-old creatives! Can you design the surfboard of the future? Create a piece of music 1-2 mins long? Design some eco-friendly fashion? Get your entries in now for the ‘This is a STEM job’ competition to win an awesome one-day internship and some cool tech!
‘This is a STEM Job’ is a collaboration between Samsung and Questacon open to young people aged between 12-25 years old, giving them the chance to live and breathe their dream job one-on-one, with a STEM creator of their choice in the form on a one-day internship.

In 2018, Creators Wanted – ‘This is a STEM Job’, will challenge perceptions and stereotypes of what ‘STEM jobs’ look like. ‘This is STEM Job’ will focus on building an emotional connection with STEM and making it a conversation for every group of teenagers in Australia. The 2018 Creators Wanted STEM Awareness Campaign, managed and delivered by Samsung, is an educational campaign designed to show students how skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are becoming increasingly relevant across all industries and future career paths.
Perform your Science featured early-career researchers and PhD students who joined forces with a range of artists to develop a series of live performances. From the life-cycle of a parasitic, caterpillar-munching wasp, to an emotional exploration of how we humans deal with ageing and frailty, Perform your Science brought to life ground-breaking, scientific research in exciting and innovative ways.
