Enterprise software provider TechnologyOne has launched its pilot program STEAM Lab for a STEAM-based experiential program, aimed at school students, at Morayfield State High School, in South-East Queensland.

After a successful series of STEAM Lab events held at TechnologyOne’s headquarters in Brisbane with hundreds of staff and their school age children, the event-based program has now expanded to a pilot in the first of many schools across the Queensland for students aged from 5 to 17.

“STEAM Lab is a first of its kind initiative that provides students with experiential, interactive technology-based experiences designed to inspire and incite a passion for pursuing an education and career in the areas of STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths,” said TechnologyOne chief executive Edward Chung.

Chung said STEAM Lab is an important way that TechnologyOne shares its technology expertise and innovation culture with students who would not otherwise have first-hand experience in the sector.

“We were delighted to launch our pilot at Morayfield State High School for more than 50 students across Grades 7 and 8, as well as providing a career expo for 30 Year 11 and 12 students," he said.

“STEAM Lab is designed to inspire the next generation of software leaders and is one of a multitude of tech-based initiatives that have grown out of our twice-yearly global Hack Days.”
