Research and Indigenous STEM Awards
About the Program
This program Recognises, rewards and celebrates the achievements of Indigenous students and scientists who are studying and working in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) field, as well as the integral role schools, teachers and mentors have in supporting Indigenous students in pursuing STEM education and careers.
We need our children and our youth to see Indigenous STEM professionals recognised and celebrated. It is important for our youth to know that they come from a sophisticated culture that has deep connections to STEM.
A Teacher in 2016 won the STEM Champion Award. He is now working use drones in schools as an engagement tool.
