Schools of the future

Success in a changing world requires students to have the skills to participate in a knowledge-based economy. That’s why we are focusing on engaging young Queenslanders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). A building block to this future is the literacy of coding which has become the new literacy and a ‘must have’ for every student.

Key highlights to be progressed include:

  • fast-tracking the Digital Technologies curriculum including coding and robotics
  • establishing STEM virtual academies, including a specialist coding academy
  • incubating the next generation of IT entrepreneurs.

Our progress

We have made significant progress and built strong foundations for ongoing success by delivering:

Students engaged in STEM
Transform the teaching of STEM
Coding and robotics starts in schools - #codingcounts

Key: * Aligns to relevant 2017 election commitments and Minister's Charter Letter commitments.


Ideas into action

Students with a robot Students engaged in STEM

Our Schools of the future strategy to support science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education in Queensland state schools includes building teacher capability to transform STEM teaching and engage more students.

Our plan for STEM in Queensland state schools will:

  • lift participation of students including girls and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students
  • give every state school access to a specialist STEM teacher
  • ensure every state school offers the Digital Technologies curriculum, including coding and robotics.
