Refraction Media is a media company that specialises in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). We think STEM underpins future careers, a smart economy and a better world. We raise awareness of STEM through digital media, careers guides, teacher resources and by connecting science, education and industry.
Today, 75% of jobs will require STEM, a figure that will continue to grow in the future. Yet enrolments in STEM in high schools, vocation and tertiary education are in decline. Digital disruption, global competition for jobs and a smarter workforce are all reasons to equip a diverse population with the STEM skills to increase their salary, solve world problems and forge new job paths. We fulfil the need to inspire students, teachers and parents, as well as business, to engage in STEM through combining STEM with their passion, whether that’s through virtual reality and interactive apps, video, career profiles, web posts, magazines or education resources.
We connect with students in three countries as well as professional school counsellors, careers advisers and parents through physical and digital distribution across Australia, New Zealand and the United States via targets, engaging magazines like Careers with Code, Careers with Engineering, Careers with Maths and Careers with Science. We partner with Google and leading corporate and educational institutions to maximise our message. in 2016, we reached more than 2.2 million students across three countries.
