The Wonder of Science program is building knowledge, passion and enthusiasm for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in Queensland’s young people. It is creating aspiration for STEM education – thus generating capacity for technical innovation in Queensland and ultimately, Australia.
The challenge tasks immerse years 5 - 9 students in challenging inquiry-based science investigations fully aligned to the Australian Curriculum: Science. Students work in teams to develop a project in response to a challenge task and present their projects to peers. Representative teams are chosen to attend regional student conferences in university settings to present their project.
See how the Wonder of Science program and the Young Science Ambassadors are working to ensure students, teachers and schools are getting the most out of the Wonder of Science experience.
