Since 1989, CSIRO Education has provided innovative and engaging science programs to schools around South Queensland. We aim to engage, enthuse and educate students, teachers and the wider community about science and its applications. It is supported by Education Queensland [external link].

CSIRO Education changes

Throughout 2014 we will be scaling back our Education Centre activities while we focus on developing new programs to be launched in 2015.  We will be taking bookings for 2015 from about October this year.

CSIRO's Double Helix Science Club events (South Queensland)

CSIRO Education is changing and this will bring with it some changes to Double Helix beyond June this year.

CSIRO remains committed to science education and outreach. For Double Helix, we will continue to publish engaging science content for young people, both digitally and in hard copy. We’ll also continue to offer activities that bring young people with an interest in science together, although these will focus on CSIRO’s science and will no longer be branded Double Helix.
