Inspire STEM Education - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

Nano-technology is expected to impact every part of our modern lives.  It is a field that most students, teachers and adults know little about despite its key role in such things as cleaning our water, defence, mining, developing cleaner energy sources, drug treatments, targeted determination of diseases, development of smaller smart telecommunications, electronics and many other industries.

Inspire STEM Education was created to inspire new generations of innovative pioneers through providing hands-on access for all learners to world class equipment and expertise in the areas of science, technology, enineering and mathematics.

At CMM, we will deliver a desktop sized Hitachi TM4000 scanning electron micrscope to your school, for teachers and students to use.  The easy transport and operation of this instrument makes it ideal to install and leave at school sites for weeks at a time.  The program is designed to fit in with the state science curriculum and add value to both teachers and students.

STEM Feedback

We received great feedback from the National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) for CMM's contribution to the NYSF 2021 Year 12 Program.  Letter of thanks from NYSF CEO Melanie Bag and the NYSF Board

The students enjoyed the content provided and left the program motivated to further their studies in STEM! 

"I liked seeing all the different applications of different types of electron microscopes, and even seeing individual atoms through a special Hitachi microscope".

Thanking our generous sponsor NewSpec who run the Inspire STEM Education program with Hitachi.
