There are a number of initiatives in Victorian schools to engage children in high-quality science curriculum. These include programs, partnerships, resources, facilities and professional development for teachers.
One of the most exciting is the establishment of six specialist science and mathematics centres offering innovative, on-site, online and outreach programs to promote science and maths education.
The Education Week Calendar of Free Activities is now open to school group bookings. Places are limited and bookings are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. These events are not open to the general public.
The Calendar is presented by the Department in partnership with galleries, museums, libraries, farms and zoos, performance groups, tourist attractions and other community organisations with educational programs.
