Deadly Coders is a program that aims to level the playing field for participation in STEM, by delivering engaging educational programs in digital technologies to Indigenous students.
The program, delivered in partnership with Junior Engineers, encourages participation in STEM subjects in schooling years, at a tertiary level, and for a career. Its aim is to impart fundamental skills to set First Nations students up for success in STEM-related fields and to help build an inclusive and diverse future STEM workforce.
Shell Energy is proud to have entered into a three-year partnership with Deadly Coders to deliver coding and robotics workshops and the development of an online learning portal, to develop skills for the future and sustainable learning pathways.

Since 2019, Shell Energy has partnered with QUT’s Science and Engineering Faculty on the Undergraduate Scholarship for Women in IT. Women make up just 27% of the workforce across all STEM industries and just 36% of enrolments in university STEM courses1. As an energy retailer, we recognise that building a talented population equipped with the skills needed to meet the growing energy demand is critical in communities where we operate. STEM education is key to the energy transition and is why we’re passionate about providing career pathways and learning opportunities in these fields.
Our scholarship program with QUT provides an opportunity for undergraduates to gain real on the job experience to become technology leaders. The program was established as part of our continued commitment and investment in improving diversity both within their business and STEM fields of work. The scholarship is valued up to $20,000 and is open to undergraduate final year students enrolled in full-time studies in Information Technology, Engineering (Computer and Software Systems) or relevant double degrees.
We’re proud to support the causes our people are passionate about. We encourage employees who are active in their communities to support charitable causes and organisations. We recognise the commitment of our team by promoting and supporting their fundraising initiatives.
