We do not accept:

Careers with STEM is aimed at students from high school to uni. We create content to inspire young people about STEM study, career options and paths, STEM education, and information on the careers of the future. It’s an inclusive, diverse environment where you can find art mixing with science, digital technology with sports, health with business and much more.
We call it STEM + X – where ‘X’ is your passion, another field or a world-changing goal. Careers with STEM magazines are mailed quarterly FREE to Australian and New Zealand high schools, distributed at careers centres, in libraries, university campuses, technology, science and research organisations and outreach. Individual and bulk copies are also available to order.
The magazine and website are widely read by 14-20 year olds, as well as parents and educators.
The writing style should be aimed at a youth (14-20 yr old) audience. The tone should be fun, casual, inspiring, and above all relevant to a youth audience. Don’t assume knowledge, clearly explain concepts and avoid long titles and affiliations.
You’d like to write a blog? Great! Here are some ideas to get you started.
There’s a myriad of ways in which you can share and inspire around STEM careers. We welcome your contributions that:
– Student reviews of STEM activities, events or programs you’ve attended
– Cover an inspiring teaching or learning program you’re running
– A personal story on something that’s inspired you in STEM
– Your life in STEM and what you do in your work
– Life and study tips
– Wow stuff. Things that are amazing in STEM + everything.
We regularly publish profiles of amazing people working in STEM careers, and we’d love to hear your story first hand! To view examples of published profiles, check these out. Remember to include your pathway – colleges you’ve attended and work experience and programs that have helped you to get where you are today – and an image of yourself that shows your personality, your work area or tasks.
If you’d like to write a profile about someone else, you can do that too! Just make sure to include their study path and a nice clear photo.
We welcome video blogs of events, career stories and cool things you’ve seen in science, technology, engineering and maths. Talking robots, amazing experiments, cool careers you’ve come across. Tell us about it! Simple add the embed link to a short blog or email us for more options.
