The Natural Hazards STEM Support Program (the Program) is a new $800,000 competitive grants program in 2023/24 to enhance STEM outreach in schools, focusing on technology education relevant to natural hazard management and response. It builds on the success of the Bushfire STEM in Schools Program, expanding the remit to deliver STEM-focused education programs covering natural hazards to improve student learning outcomes and build resilience in communities.
The Program aims to enhance the STEM education and skill development of students in kindergarten through to Year 12, through the implementation of program/s that focus on technologies directly relevant to the management and response of natural hazards. This strategic focus is intended to inspire the next generation of innovators and technologists by not only educating but also igniting the curiosity of students in technological domains.
Eligible organisations will be required to deliver STEM-focused education programs covering natural hazards directly to the school children and/or provide the training required for school staff and teachers to deliver the programs themselves. A program can be either an established program or a pilot program. Eligible organisations can apply for up to $400,000 per grant application in FY 2023/24, with projects delivered in the following financial year.
