Tasmanian STEM MAD Online 2022 SHOWCASE

STEM MAD is a competition for students from any of the 38 Catholic Schools in Tasmania.

Designed to acknowledge and promote STEM learning initiatives, STEM MAD seeks to address real-world problems and demonstrate how students in Catholic schools take action that matters. Student teams are invited to design a product, service or innovation to 'Make A Difference' (MAD) to others or the environment.

2022 Tasmanian students will be showcasing their entries via an online presentation on 11 August from 1.45 - 3.00pm 

The online showcase will include the Presentation of 2022 Tasmanian STEM MAD awards + selected excerpts from winning videos + a guest presentation by Dr Lila Landowski (Neuroscientist) on Learning Superpowers for students
