Thank you to all who put forward their innovative and novel ideas for Inspiring Australia’s WA Small Grants in 2021. We received 64 funding requests for project ideas from across the state – it was a very tough process deciding who would receive funding.
Our independent judging panel awarded more than $50,000 in grant funding to 15 successful applicants this year.
Supported activities in 2021 include: a renewable energy outreach program; an Aboriginal STEM Education workshop series; a bush tucker garden; family STEM engagement events; a biosphere discovery week; an online chemistry party; and stargazing events across the state.
Congratulations to our successful grant recipients for 2021!
