we are proud to announce

PwC announces National Strategic Partnership with Little Scientists Australia.

‘We need better STEM content and skills development in the early years of education but it can be difficult to get support for spending because the economic payback doesn’t happen until the individual is through the education system and earning a wage. We’re working with Little Scientists to address the problem at the start’
PwC Managing Partner and STEM leader, Tony Peake.
