Maths and science programs in Australian schools are being given a $48 million boost, as part of a new ‘STEM’ literacy program.

STEM stands for Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics, and the funding was announced as part of the Government’s Innovation statement.

But one teacher says there’s something still missing in the Government’s plan to create an innovative economy of the future.

Dr Paul Browning is the principal of St Paul’s School in North Brisbane.

He believes that in order to foster an innovative mindset and entrepreneurial spirit in young people, teachers need to ‘think better’, and look beyond better academic outcomes.
