Over 80 year 7 and 8 students have settled in at Mylor Adventure Camp for the first National Youth Science Forum STEM Explorer program.

The students will spend the next 7 days participating in activities that aim to stimulate interest in science, technology, engineering and maths.

Representatives from local Universities along with technologists and engineers from the SA Health and Medical Aquatic Sciences and Natural Resource Management will lead the programs.

SA Education and Child Development Minister Susan Close says camps like these will hopefully help plug a gap in the workforce in the future.

"This forum is an ideal opportunity for our students to explore STEM on a deeper level and network with other students and experts who share similar interests and levels of passion in these subjects."

"Using mentors from senior high school, universities and other STEM related industries demonstrates how valuable partnerships are to creating high quality learning opportunities for our students."

"There’s an identified need for more STEM graduates in the State, and NYSF have worked hard to tailor their specialist pilot program to profile a host of opportunities."
