Summary A stem discourse is emerging in Australian national and state school education policies, as governments seek to develop a vision and road map for the future. This official discourse argues in support of a national stem enterprise, so that Australias economic growth and way of life will be maintained. Within this discourse, schools are framed as important to increasing the participation and performance of students in stem, and to building a highly-skilled stem workforce. This chapter analyses several recent national and state school education policies to gain greater understanding of this positioning.
