Abstract

This project established the sustainability of Banksia Gardens Community Centre's science education program, which aims to increase interest in science-based careers in the underprivileged community of Broadmeadows. We created a research- based framework for sustainable programs based on seven principles: vision, community needs, adaptability, program results, partnerships, funding, and leadership. We contributed to five of these by stating a vision, identifying key community needs, exploring the feasibility of bringing the program to schools, developing three program versions, and establishing two partnerships.
