Shell is our longest-standing corporate partner. We have worked together over the past 35 years to deliver the Shell Questacon Science Circus to regional and remote communities across Australia. This partnership has allowed the Shell Questacon Science Circus to reach more than 2.8 million Australians and visit more than 600 towns and 110 Indigenous communities.

Shell and Questacon activities focus on increasing STEM engagement and capacity building in collaboration with communities in regions identified through our National Presence Strategy and Shell’s Social Investment portfolio.

More recent partnership programs expanded our activities, including ultra-portable exhibit experiences and informal STEM learning workshops. Questacon and Shell delivered these programs throughout 2021 and 2022.
