DLTV's Members Community Grants Program

Members Community Grants

Digital Learning and Teaching Victoria (DLTV) have launched Members Community Grants Program where schools can apply for a grant between $1,500 to $3,000 to implement an innovative DigiTech program for your school or surrounding schools. 

Schools can purchase plans that support development of STEM skills in students and youth under 18 years of age in design, engineering and programming, through hands-on learning.

This is a great opportunity for current DLTV members and for schools who are interested in joining DLTV.

A School STEM space or makerspace is so more than just hardware. Teachers need the right software, class management tools, resources, professional development, training and support so that they can efficiently become confident and effective teachers within this space. 

Fortunately, Makers Empire includes everything schools need to successfully integrate Design Thinking, maker pedagogy and 3D printing into their everyday teaching practice.
