The Peter Doherty Awards for Excellence in STEM Education recognise students, teachers, support officers, schools and education partners (volunteers, mentors and organisations) who demonstrate an outstanding and innovative contribution to STEM education in Queensland.
The awards are named after Professor Peter Doherty, a Brisbane-born Nobel Prize winning scientist who was educated at Indooroopilly State High School and the University of Queensland.
In 2015, the renowned Peter Doherty Awards for Excellence in Science and Science Education expanded and the awards became the Peter Doherty Awards for Excellence in STEM Education. This acknowledges STEM education as a strategic priority for the Department of Education.
Congratulations to the winners of the 2018 Peter Doherty Awards for Excellence in STEM Education. The winners were announced by the Minister for Education 10 August 2018.
