Leading enterprise Software as a Service (SaaS) provider TechnologyOne (ASX: TNE), has launched its pilot program STEAM Lab for a STEAM-based experiential program aimed at school students at Morayfield State High School, in South-East Queensland.

"STEAM Lab is a first of its kind initiative that provides students with experiential, interactive technology-based experiences designed to inspire and incite a passion for pursuing an education and career in the areas of STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths," said TechnologyOne CEO, Edward Chung.

After a successful series of STEAM Lab events held at TechnologyOne’s headquarters in Brisbane with hundreds of staff and their school age children, the event-based program has now expanded to a pilot in the first of many schools across the state for students aged from 5 to 17.

Mr Chung said STEAM Lab is an important way that TechnologyOne shares its technology expertise and innovation culture with students who would not otherwise have first-hand experience in this sector.

"We were delighted to launch our pilot at Morayfield State High School for more than 50 students across Grades 7 and 8, as well as providing a career expo for 30 Year 11 and 12 students," he said.

"STEAM Lab is designed to inspire the next generation of software leaders and is one of a multitude of tech-based initiatives that have grown out of our twice-yearly global Hack Days," Mr Chung said.
