Rivers Academy of STEM Excellence (RASE)

Who We Are:

The Rivers Academy of STEM Excellence (RASE) is a collaborative project between local public high schools, primary schools and industry, and is designed to provide our students with access to innovative and real-world learning experiences. The academy employs two full-time STEM Project Officers who support schools through their implementation of the STEM Design Thinking Process and establishing industry links.

Our Purpose:

To develop a learning community that builds teacher confidence and capacity to embed STEM Design Thinking principles across the curriculum through collaboration, professional development opportunities and establishing connections with local industry. This will increase STEM opportunities for students and create equitable pathways that inspire them to embrace STEM learning, while building skills and knowledge that prepare them for working in and shaping the future.
