DeadlyWeather Collaboration

ClosedGrant Closed: 21st of October 2022 Value: Science equipment Run By: DeadlyScience Further Information: https://deadlyscience.org.au/programs/deadlyweather/

DeadlyScience's aim is to provide Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) resources, opportunities and early reading material to remote and very remote schools across Australia. Science is a lifelong pursuit and continuous search for knowledge that has been advancing for generations. They want to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in STEM to continue that tradition through – Inspiration, Connections, Innovations and Discovery. It is important to DeadlyScience to lead the way forward in celebrating what our first scientists achieved, and what our future scientists will discover in STEM.

DeadlyWeather collaboration aims to build engagement in STEM and support the development of STEM skills in  students in rural, remote and very remote schools across Australia. The project will involve links between Indigenous and non-Indigenous weather and climate knowledge, connecting students and teachers with scientists and their research to provide real time data, science and skills. The project provides climate science and weather resources to foster creativity and inquiry-based learning. DeadlyWeather supports the development of STEM skills in students and engagement through hands-on learning.

Eligible applicants must be:

  • be a government or non-government school;
  • have current public liability insurance cover; and
  • either:
    • have an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student population of more that 15% of the total student population; or
    • be classified as a rural, remote or very remote school according to MySchool.

There are 15 DeadlyWeather collaboration kits available from DeadlyScience to successful
applicants. Each kit will contain:

  • Weather station;
  • Class set of lab coats and goggles;
