Building the case for STEM
STEM subjects are the pathway to many roles at BlueScope. In North America, the BlueScope Foundation supports FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) which engages students by combining science with sports. The local FIRST® team toured BlueScope Buildings' Grandview facility and was fascinated by the materials test lab. The Foundation also supports the ‘Expanding Your Horizons’ conference in Visalia, CA, which inspires girls to pursue STEM career opportunities, and the annual Science Fair in Kansas City which highlights students’ innovative projects and experiments.
