An online resource – STARportal – is the go-to place for families and teachers to discover local STEM activities for the children in their lives. It offers the most comprehensive collection of STEM activities and providers in Australia.
STARportal is a collaboration between the Office of the Chief Scientist, Engineers Australia, Telstra, AMSI, BHP Billiton and the Commonwealth Bank, in consultation with the Australian Government’s Department of Education to ensure all Australian families have access to any and all STEM outreach activities in their area and online.
Teachers, students and families can search the STARportal for STEM activities in their area. Information about citizen science projects taking place Australia is provided by the Australian Citizen Science Association and the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA).
You will find the ALA listed on STARportal with links to our education resources and classroom activities.
For more information about how to use the ALA in your classroom, please contact our Education Officer, Taryn Johnson.
The ALA is funded by the Australian Government’s National Collaborative Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) and is hosted by CSIRO.
