Peter Doherty Awards for excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education

Nominations are now open for the 2015 Peter Doherty Awards for Excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education.

In 2015 the renowned Peter Doherty Awards for Excellence in Science and Science Education are expanding. The awards will now be known as the Peter Doherty Awards for Excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education. This acknowledges STEM education as a strategic priority for the Department of Education and Training.

To reflect this change, three new award categories have been added:

·  Outstanding Senior Mathematics and Technology Student Awards

·  Outstanding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Senior Mathematics and Technology Student Awards

·  Outstanding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Senior Science Student Awards.

The Peter Doherty Awards for Excellence in STEM Education recognise students, teachers, support officers, schools and education partners (volunteers, mentors and organisations) who demonstrate an outstanding and innovative contribution to STEM education in Queensland.

The awards are named after Professor Peter Doherty, a Brisbane-born Nobel Prize winning scientist.
