Who's behind STEM Nest?


STEM Nest Pty Ltd is run and managed by Karlie, a STEM professional with over 20 years’ experience.  With the eldest of two children at primary school and constantly asking questions about how things work, Karlie has an ever growing list of interesting STEM topics to explore in Activity Kits.  Not to forget the little ones, the youngest has inspired Little STEMies to provide early STEM learning opportunities.

Karlie holds a Masters of Engineering (Military Systems Integration) and a Bachelor of Science (Mathematics and Computer Science) (Honours) with professional experience across a range of Australian and International roles in the Science, Technology, Maths and Engineering fields.  Karlie is supported by a team of STEM and education professionals including a former University of South Australia and Flinders University Primary School Education lecturer who specialised in Science.

Locally developed and produced in Adelaide, South Australia, STEM Nest is proud to assist in the development of future Australian STEM professionals.
