RUC has a long standing association with The STEM unitED program. Which responds to alarming statistics that only 30 percent of students are interested in studies in mining or METS. This is coupled with the steady decline in number of students graduating from mining disciplines.
The STEM unitED program aims to inspire Year 9 students from 25 schools, across 200 classrooms. The reach will be anywhere from 3000-6000 students.
Fully staffed and fully equipped, students will build robots and drones, and analyse activities through examining and interpreting datasets and predictive outcomes.
STEM unitED aims to ignite interest and bridge the gap between STEM and real-world applications. It is hoped that this positive experience will create interest in STEM careers, including mining, for students, their parents and educators.
Mates in Mining
RUC sponsors and therefore subsidises MATE. Which was established in response to a major report on suicide (the ‘AISRAP Report’) within the Queensland Commercial Building and Construction Industry. This report found that suicide rates in the industry were higher than the Australian average for men, and that youth suicide within the industry could be as much as 2.38 times more common than among other young Australian men.
The MATES program is based on the simple idea that ‘suicide is everyone’s business’. If the building and construction industry in Australia is to improve the mental health and well-being of workers and reduce suicide, then it cannot be left to mental health professionals: everyone in the industry must play their part.
