The objective of the project presented by the Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) was to evaluate the science education programs offered in the state of Victoria in order to provide recommendations to increase the participation levels of these programs. Project research was focused on determining factors hindering participation levels, such as program structure, curriculum and content, the marketing of the program and logistical barriers preventing eligible schools from participating. Successful completion of the project provided a SWOT analysis and recommendations of methods CSIRO could employ to increase participation.
