Let's Torque: Panel Discussion - What does STEM mean to you?

Let's Torque: Panel Discussion - What does STEM mean to you?

Why do we use the term STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)? What does it really mean to young STEM students today?

Join Let’s Torque, a student-run STEM communication organisation started at Monash University, in a panel discussion. The topic of discussion is ‘What does STEM mean to you?’

In addition to discussing that question, the event will also explore the appeal of a variety of STEM fields and highlight the talent and passion of current STEM students.

This event is aimed at young people aged between late teens to late 20s, but suitable for anyone aged 15+.

This is a free event. Bookings are required.
