Griffith University update and exciting scholarship opportunities

Posted by heo

Let’s be honest, 2020 has not panned out the way we had expected. Like universities the world over, Griffith has been required to ramp up online teaching and ensure a seamless transition of our student support services. Griffith University’s commitment to engaging students as partners in their education, and our 20+ years’ experience of teaching online, has shone through during these extraordinary circumstances.

Griffith will soon launch an international version of the popular STEM Mania program. This fun, online Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) program provides students with a challenge they must complete, and then upload their results to share with each other. Competitors will vote to award Challenge Superstars and earn digital badges. Please keep an eye out for a separate email invitation to register your School’s interest to join.
