Bringing STEM to life: mining, oil and gas like you never imagined.
For two days in November the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre will be transformed by futuristic and thoroughly interactive displays of world-class robotics, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, autonomous vehicles and remote operations centres.
Students and teachers will experience a behind-the-scenes look at the technology which is transforming the resources sector – and shaping the jobs of tomorrow.

27-28 November, 2019
Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre
Year 3-10. This excursion supports the WA Curriculum: Science, Technologies and HASS.
Bookings will be available in early Term 3 on a first come, first served basis.
The excursion duration is 2 hours.
Groups will be able to make bookings in half-hour increments throughout each day, with the first session being at 9am.
We expect this to be a sold-out event, so restrictions will apply to group size and number of groups per school.
STEM in Action
The Showcase will combine jaw-droppingly massive industrial machinery with world-class computing power to bring STEM to life in a way that Perth has never seen.
Our country’s oil and gas and mining companies use robots so sophisticated they have grabbed the attention of NASA. Our driverless vehicles work 24 hours a day on an industrial scale – not just in the controlled environment of a laboratory in Silicon Valley. Augmented reality is defeating the tyranny of distance every day.
Australia’s resources industry is the backbone of this country’s economy and a massive employer.
The Showcase is a window into the careers of future. Students will be encouraged to immerse themselves in the technology that will be critical to the jobs they take after they leave school – and ask questions directly to senior business leaders about the resources industry’s challenges and successes.
With displays from around 50 schools, interact with the students and teachers from each and get a first-hand look at what WA schools are doing in the technology and innovation space.
