Advanced Queensland Engaging Science Grants now available

Libraries are encouraged to apply for the Science grants of up to $10,000 under the next round of the Advance Queensland Engaging Science Grants to support STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) activities and programs in your library.

Aimed at providing an event or research activity involving students, parents and scientists, this is a great way to bring inter-generational learning into your library within your region.

“We know that employment in this sector is growing two times faster than other occupations and it is important we embrace this and look at the career opportunities of the future.”

Minister Enoch said these grants have helped to expand the reach of science across Queensland.

“In July we announced 15 successful projects who received funding under the previous round, including a school that installed remote cameras to monitor wildlife, drone coding workshops, and a project that is helping people to become citizen scientists by hunting for fossils.”

The current grant round are aimed to increase STEAM participation, Scientist and Public engagement, Public awareness and understanding of the great science taking place across Queensland.

Grants close at 1pm on Monday 4 November.
