The School

Value the impact of education.

Established in 2017, Monash Tech School is funded as part of the Education State Tech Schools Initiative. We deliver industry sector-specific programs to students from participating partner schools in the City of Monash.

 

Monash Tech School pioneered the design of multi-day programs that combine STEM technologies, HASS skills, enterprise skills, Victoria’s Priority Sectors, and design thinking. In partnership with the City of Monash and Monash University, we hosted the Monash Mini Maker Faire, the largest Victorian STEM community event in 2019. 

 

Significant achievements include designing:

  • STEM modules for students in Special Education,

  • ground-breaking mathematics programs for primary schools across Victoria,

  • new STEM technologies, and

  • bespoke industry immersion days.

Our Purpose

Design your future now.

We design what comes next in education by working with project partners to create programs that inspire confidence in the future of the Monash Precinct. These programs are developed by a diverse, forward-thinking multi-disciplinary team, who are continually resourced by investments in STEM technologies. We operate flexibly to maximise our impact on the future of learning.

Our programs keep pace with rapidly developing STEM technology and cutting edge research in Victoria’s priority sectors. Students leave with adaptable skills and in-depth knowledge that leverages current and emerging industry developments. They use the latest technology including machine learning, room-scale mixed reality, 3D bio-printing and industry-quality lab equipment to creatively solve problems.
