Hosted in WA by Scitech, Inspiring WA is a part of a nationwide initiative called Inspiring Australia.
About Inspiring Western Australia
Inspiring Australia is a government program aimed at engaging all Australians with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Through the delivery of National Science Week, the distribution of state-wide grant funding, and the support provided to regional networks the program aims to support STEM events and initiatives in every corner of Western Australia.
How does Inspiring Australia raise awareness of STEM in Western Australia?
By collaborating with STEM organisations Inspiring WA coordinates National Science Week, the country’s weeklong celebration of all things STEM. Funding is provided to those wishing to run engaging community events throughout the month of August, in both metro and regional locations. Each year, funding is also made available through grants to those wishing to deliver a STEM initiative or event in their local community. Emphasis is placed on supporting initiatives that will create ongoing opportunities for communities to engage with STEM.
These activities all have one overarching goal, to engage all Australians with science. By increasing Western Australia’s engagement with STEM, the program hopes to build a community that appreciates the science around them and celebrates the excitement of scientific discoveries.
