STEM for schools

Our STEM for schools program started in 2013. We deliver fully funded on-campus workshops, events and professional learning across science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines to help Queensland schools understand the importance of STEM.

We’re committed to inspiring the next generation of STEM leaders by creating hands-on experiences that excite and enthuse students to pursue STEM studies and careers.

In 2017 over 9,450 high school students, teachers and parents experienced STEM workshops and events at QUT.
