Future Makers is an innovative partnership between Queensland Museum Network and QGC formed to encourage students, teachers and the community to get involved in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) education in Australia.
This partnership aims to engage and inspire people with the wonder of science, and increase the participation and performance of young Australians in STEM-related careers — creating a highly capable workforce for the future.
Economic modelling by PriceWaterhouseCoopers shows that shifting just 1% of the workforce into STEM would add $57.4 billion to Australia’s GDP over 20 years.
The Future Makers program connects activities focused on Prep to Year 12 curriculum with family and community participation through four components.
- Programs in schools
- Public engagement
