We must cultivate the natural curiosity and capabilities of children.

By igniting their imaginations to a world of possibilities and challenging them to pursue new ideas and help solve real-world problems through the application of deep knowledge.

With ambition, I am confident our children will achieve their, and our nation's, future aspirations.

Dr Alan Finkel AO FAA FTSE Australia's Chief Scientist

Sparking children's interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects from an early age is at the forefront of the Morrison's Government's support for science.

We know that many of the jobs of the future will require STEM skills and it's crucial that students are studying it through primary and high school.
