By blending active student learning and engagement with theoretical knowledge and real-world skills, our researchers are finding new ways to foster the next generation’s passion for science. 

Through collaboration across UQ and other institutions worldwide, our experts produce world-class programs that empower and engage students as learners and leaders, and use the latest technology to build teaching tools that bring science classrooms to life across Queensland and beyond.

Using quantitative and qualitative methods to examine the development, implementation, stakeholder experience and outcomes of educational activities, researchers in this theme also monitor and measure how well new educational experiences work for students and academics

Through multiple citizen science initiatives, we are also bringing science to the public, while collecting data to help answer some of the world’s biggest scientific questions.
