Science Outreach - Supporting Inclusion & Participation in Science
The future of science, and of our society, rests with the generations currently engaged in schooling and tertiary studies. The RSV’s membership is deeply committed to the development of youth skills that will enable these generations to be productive, innovative and professionally agile in a challenging era of rapid technological, environmental and economic change. Sometimes this involves supporting teacher professional development, other times it involves engaging the whole of a family in the fun of a kids' science, robotics or coding club.
Further, the RSV supports a "lifelong learning," community-based approach to recognising and fostering engagement in the sciences across regional and metropolitan Victoria. This encompasses: fostering a deeper understanding of and appreciation for the environment that supports us; STEMM workforce diversity, inclusion and participation initiatives, and; citizen science programs. Increasingly, the provision of small science engagement grants to Victorian communities through managements of the Inspiring Victoria program is answering a clear requirement for science content, and your support would be appreciated in extending our resources to meet the growing demand.
