Welcome to MIE Lab
About MIE Lab
Make, Integrate & Explore (MIE) Lab provides the opportunity for all students, teachers, parents and the community to learn and engage in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) activities and experiences.
Our aim is to garner interest in STEM subjects at school, encourage future transition into tertiary studies, support positive growth of STEM occupations and to inspire the next generation of STEM leaders.
School-based career and technical education (CTE) sessions which develop students’ Computational Thinking Skills using technologies such as Scratch and Micro Drones.
MIE Events brings together all things STEM in a range of exciting and engaging events hosted across Sunshine Coast and beyond. Events include various challenges and immersive experiences to get students (and adults) excited about STEM!
MIE Community programs have been developed in consultation with regional communities to provide STEM inspiration to the broader community.
MIE Lab is a widening participation program developed by the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) to increase participation in tertiary education in STEM fields.
It is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment under the Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program. In 2022/2023 the MIE Lab project is supporting the Crystallising STEM Careers project funded by the Australian Government Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources under a National Careers Institute Partnerships grant.
