This project, performed in Australia with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation's Science Education Centres (CSIRO SEC), was a study of science education in secondary schools. Its goal was to create hands-on activities and cutting-edge demonstrations to expose students to emerging technologies. CSIRO SEC develops interactive learning activities that are meant to pique student interest in the sciences. It will use the outcomes of this project to strengthen its existing programs and develop new programs relating to emerging technologies.
