For primary students

As a young, creative student you are one of Australia's future innovators.

When should a child learn about engineering? The answer may surprise you. While the concept of engineering brings to mind all manner of technical skills, scientific knowledge and high-level thinking the fact is that all engineers were once young students who found a passion for problem solving through creativity and ingenuity.

It is never too early to introduce a student to engineering. With a natural flair for creativity and a bold attitude towards learning, instilling a passion for the components of engineering at a young age is a fantastic way to guide a child toward a STEM career.

Engineers Australia has partnered with Australia’s Chief Scientist to develop the STARportal.edu.au,  Australia’s first centralised national portal for exciting and engaging STEM activities from around the country. This searchable database connects parents, students and teachers with their local and online STEM activities in real time.

The STARportal has been a collaboration between the Office of the Chief Scientist, Engineers Australia, Telstra, AMSI, BHP Billiton and the Commonwealth Bank, in consultation with the Department of Education to ensure all Australian families have access to any and all STEM outreach activities in their area and online.
