Future Makers is an innovative partnership between Queensland Museum Network and Shell QGC, who joined forces to increase awareness and understanding of the value of STEM in Queensland schools and communities.
The Future Makers partnership responds directly to national evidence showing the rate of Australian school students participating in STEM subjects has declined.
Demand for STEM professionals continues to grow in Australia, as these skills underpin scientific and technological advances, which boost productivity, create jobs and support the economy.
The partnership aims to increase students’ uptake of and performance in STEM-related subjects and careers, while supporting the STEM priorities of the Queensland and Australian Governments.
Both organisations hope Future Makers’ legacy includes a highly capable and innovative workforce ready to tackle problems and seize opportunities facing our state and nation.
