The Foundations site is ideally located to establish STEAMWORKS, a sustainability and education centre enabling children in the Lithgow and Central West region to gain exposure to potential career opportunities not commonly offered in regional areas. The centre will focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths.  

STEAMWORKS will bring industry and students together to experience the various disciplines of STEAM and inspire students to develop skills in real-world applications. Creating positive perceptions of STEAM will motivate students to pursue STEAM-based careers.
