Universities & Schools
Australia has many proactive and community spirited educational institutions. BMRG continues to foster strong relationships with institutions such as the Australian National University, Charles Sturt University, CQ University, Griffith University, Queensland University of Technology, University of the Sunshine Coast and the University of Queensland because we believe strongly in the role of natural resource management in supporting our future generations.
Reef Guardian Council
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority’s Reef Guardian schools program began in 2003 and sees students, teachers, their communities and local environmental agencies make positive environmental changes for the marine environment. A key objective of the Reef Guardian Schools program is to create awareness, understanding and appreciation for the Reef and its connected ecosystems. This fosters stewardship and promotes a community culture of custodianship for Reef protection. It empowers students and gives them a sense of involvement in the bigger picture and encourages them to make a positive difference.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) touches every aspect of our lives, from our smartphones to the technologies that enable us to explore the world around us and outer space. It also drives innovation in our fast-changing global economy. To succeed in this environment and for Queensland to continue to prosper into the future, our students need a strong foundation in STEM. The Advancing STEM in Queensland state primary schools initiative is an exciting opportunity for schools to improve STEM outcomes for students throughout Queensland.
