Clifton State High School student, Hayden Bellingham was awarded a Peter Doherty Award for Excellence in STEM last week.
Education Minister, Grace Grace announced the 12 winners of the STEM awards at a ceremony on Friday, with Hayden the only student from the Darling Downs region recognised. He received $5000 to put towards his tertiary studies related to science and engineering. Hayden also received news that St Leo’s College in Brisbane will have a place in residence for him to study at next year.
Ms Grace said there were 189 applications this year which was a new record. “The number of jobs in STEM fields is growing at more than twice the rate of other industries and occupations,” she said. “That’s why we are committed to encouraging more students to engage in STEM, to prepare them for the jobs of the future. Under the Advancing STEM in Queensland State Primary Schools Initiative, we are investing $81.3 million over four years for primary schools to develop and enhance students’ learning in STEM subjects,” Ms Grace said.
