School-Industry Spatial Immersion Initiative

This is She Maps' highest supported program, providing teachers and students with a tailored curriculum, focused on the development of spatial skills, using drones as the centrepiece. This secondary STEM school program extends student learning as they gain exposure to critical future STEM skills, and are given industry insights with real-world problems to solve.  Teachers are personally supported by our education team, and Dr Karen Joyce, a leading international researcher in the spatial sciences. More Information

Whole School Outcomes

Establish a positive STEM culture at your school (and reputation), while building sustainable partnerships between Lighthouse Schools, tertiary education providers, and industry.

A Tailored Learning Solution

The Lighthouse Schools Program is delivered through a combination of face-to-face (incursion), and via virtual coaching and online professional learning. 

Our approach is to tailor the program to suit the needs and requirements of each individual school, and the nature and availability of industry partners within the local community.  

We start by identifying the teachers, scoping student capabilities, and sourcing tertiary education providers, and business & industry partners willing to collaborate and participate in the partnership. 

The investment required from the school depends on the scope of the program and whether we are able to secure additional funding or sponsorship from local industry.

We limit the number of schools in this STEM school program, to ensure we can provide the level of support required to become a Lighthouse School.
