Refraction Media Presentation

  1. 1. Karen Taylor-Brown, Publisher @ Refraction Media karen@refractionmedia.com.au @kazjtay STEM: Underpinning the careers of the future
  2. 2. Careers with STEM Thanks so much for the magazines. I had a Year 12 student come in today, very lost and disengaged. He only knows that he likes computers and being creative. You should have seen his eyes light up when I gave him one of the magazines!! It was the best. Careers Advisor, St Monica’s College, Epping, Victoria The layout, stories, photos and entire concept is excellent. As a tool with students it has been highly effective. Colleagues have seized on its potential to expedite appropriate learning. Careers Adviser, McCarthy Catholic College The girls liked the variety in the articles, it really surprised them where coding could take them. I think it really appealed to them on their level and the university advice was also really useful. ICT Integrator/TAS Teacher, Ravenswood, NSW
