At CSIRO, we know science can change nations and create the future. It makes leaders and builds communities. It saves lives and builds industries.
But we also know science can be gooey, slimy, weird, exciting, explosive and just plain fun. That's why we like it.
CSIRO operates a number of fun, educational and informative clubs and programs that anyone can join.
CSIRO's Double Helix Science Club
The Double Helix Science Club offers news, events and other benefits for members aged seven and over. Choose from two magazines, The Helix (ages 10 and over) and Scientriffic (ages seven and over), each featuring science articles, activities, pen pals, competitions and more.
Science by Email
Science teaches us different ways of thinking about the world, and skills that are used in many areas.
There's no excuse for being uninformed when our free Science by Email newsletter arrives into your inbox with:
Don’t let the kids sit at home during the holidays. Get them to come and experiment in our labs with lots of hands-on activities and things to take home.
Holiday programs run in all states and territories through CSIRO’s Science Education Centres and are designed so that the whole family can have some fun with science.
SCOPE is a half-hour children's science television show. It is fast, funny and informative entertainment for children aged 8-14 years.
Hosted by CSIRO's zany and energetic scientist, Dr Robert Bell, and joined by a hand picked team of 'junior' scientists', SCOPE investigates a different theme each week to explore the science around us. Leading scientists present stories about their research and discoveries.
SCOPE screens on the TEN network on Mondays at 7.30 am.
