Share in, discover, and contribute to the exciting science that is happening around Victoria.

Science is all around us, and many organisations across Victoria are bringing science to everyone. Our state is a hub of world-class, innovative science. Here we share stories about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and all sorts of programs and activities with a “science” flavour.
