The Maker Projects: Community STEM Engagement grants aim to foster creativity and inquiry-based learning and support the development of STEM skills in students and youth under 18 years of age in design, engineering and programming, through hands-on learning.

The objectives of the grant opportunity are to:

  • deliver maker projects where students and youth under 18 years of age can develop and apply their STEM knowledge through experimentation, tinkering and hands-on learning by engaging with a range of technologies
  • encourage practical skills, creativity and entrepreneurial thinking through the delivery of hands-on STEM-related events and activities
  • inspire students to pursue STEM disciplines in their study and work
  • ensure that maker projects are accessible to as many young people as possible, including those in regional, rural and disadvantaged areas
  • make a positive sustainable impact on youth under 18 years of age, particularly those from historically under-represented groups, including girls, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, and youth living in regional, rural and remote regions.
