Science education portal now open

The STAR portal is a searchable repository of resources and materials for teachers of science at primary and secondary levels. It has been developed by the Chief Scientist of Australia. People and organisations who sponsor educational activities or produce teaching materials are invited to register their resources as ‘providers’.

The STAR portal is now live.

This project was triggered by a Queensland initiative,a brainstorming session on science education sponsored in 2015 by the Royal Society of Queensland in collaboration with the Office of the Queensland Chief Scientist and the Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering. The proceedings along with an explanation of the origin of the STAR portal are available on our STEM education page.
