​During the September school holidays from 17 September 2016 to 28 September 2016, Ashley Dear, a student from Centenary Heights State High School, participated in the inaugural 2016 STEM Student Study Tour to Taiwan. 
 

As part of the program, 10 students and 2 chaperones from a number of state schools in Queensland travelled to Taiwan where they attended two schools, Nanshan High school and Zhonghe Senior High School in New Taipei City and stayed with a homestay family. The students had the opportunity to develop their Chinese language skills and STEM learning through participation in STEM classes and activities at the host schools and industry visits. These experiences broadened their vision of the career opportunities that become available when the study of STEM and languages is combined.

 

The participants in the program also represented Queensland at the Trade and Investment Queensland Education Reception on the 21 September 2016, where they had the opportunity to showcase Queensland state schools in an international setting. They were wonderful ambassadors for Queensland and this provided them with yet another opportunity to develop as global citizens. Queensland’s Commissioner in Taiwan told me they "stole the show"!
