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.
Our activities are underpinned by concepts of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship – essential skills for STEM careers of the future.
In 2019 over 10,915 high school students, teachers and parents experienced STEM workshops and events at QUT.
High school workshops
We offer free, curriculum-mapped STEM workshops for high school groups. The workshops are held at our Science and Engineering Centre, and run for either half a day or a full day.Available workshops
In 2020 we are offering a conference-style program for students in Years 9 to 12 offering exciting talks, hands-on workshops and research projects to explore a future that combines creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship through STEM.
High school internships
Our internships are an opportunity for Year 11 and 12 students to expand their STEM skills, explore career ambitions and experience first-class research.
We work with under-represented school groups to build aspiration for university study, particularly in the STEM fields.
We want to break down the barriers to entry to university, and make studying and applying accessible to students from all backgrounds.
