Inspiring Australia

Science needs our support, in order to support us. We need more people to be generating ideas that can be fed into a society ready to accept and analyse them. As the world becomes ever more complex, the community will be increasingly asked to decide between options. Our community will be better, our democracy more robust, our future more secure, if our citizens are able to make better informed decisions.

With these skills, our children will be set to not only become Australia’s future leaders in science, but take leadership in any walk of life.
