The Australian Government is providing a new round of funding for the establishment of Maker Spaces in schools with up to $5000 available for primary or secondary schools.

Maker Projects aims to foster creativity and inquiry based learning in Australian schools and communities through the establishment of:

  • maker spaces in schools where students can apply their STEM knowledge, develop entrepreneurial skills, and gain experience in working with emerging and advancing technologies (Stream A)
  • STEM-related events and education activities delivered in partnership with industry for youth under 18 years of age. These will build capability and leverage off the skills gained by organisations who have previously participated in delivering innovation, entrepreneurship and enterprise focused education activities for young people

The program is extremely popular and likely to be well subscribed. Please be ready to apply when applications open on 8 November and submit your application as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Applications will be processed in the order they are received. Applications close when the funding for this year runs out.
