The Governor’s School STEM Awards (the Awards) is an annual awards program overseen by the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation and administered by Scitech. The Awards recognise and celebrate Western Australian primary and secondary schools that demonstrate excellence in leadership, advocacy, engagement and achievements in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education.
The Awards support the Government’s State STEM skills strategy by highlighting the importance of developing a whole-of-school STEM culture where STEM learning is embraced by the school principal, leadership team and teachers with a resulting positive impact on students, parents and the community.
