Secondary students

Promising young talent that will become the next generation of Australian engineers.

Engineers Australia knows that many of the most successful engineers weren’t merely forged at university – they began their engineering journey while young, eager and full of possibility. Engineers Australia has partnered with Australia’s Chief Scientist to develop the STARportal.edu.au,  Australia’s first centralised national portal for exciting and engaging STEM activities from around the country.

Perhaps your interest and aptitude in science and maths has guided you to engineering. Maybe you love designing and building, or have ideas that will make the world a better place. You might even be driven to engineering by a cause you believe in, such as feeding the hungry or cleaning the world’s oceans.

No matter how you arrived at engineering, know this: as an engineer you will face rewarding challenges, work with brilliant minds, put your skills and talents to great use and shape a future where our tools, vehicles, structures and cities are more functional, efficient and accessible.

The STARportal has been a collaboration between the Office of the Chief Scientist, Engineers Australia, Telstra, AMSI, BHP Billiton and the Commonwealth Bank, in consultation with the Department of Education to ensure all Australian families have access to any and all STEM outreach activities in their area and online.
