Inspiring STEM Hub Forum
 
On 20 & 21 November the Inspiring Australia Queensland Regional STEM Hub Forum brought together seven Regional STEM Hubs from across the state to meet in Brisbane at The Edge, SLQ. It was fantastic to host representatives from each of the Queensland STEM Hubs: Cairns, Darling Downs South West, Gympie, Gladstone, Longreach, Rockhampton and Townsville.
Much  was achieved during the two days including an initial bringing together of key representatives from the state-wide network, strategic planning, community building presentations, local story sharing and working with the The Edge team at State Library of Queensland in the Fabrication Lab for professional development activities. 
Thirty people attended the Forum, representing the more than 300 people who are now involved in the network and a range of organisations including universities, primary and high schools, local council and libraries, government, non-profit organisations, research organisations, industry bodies and businesses.
