Welcome to Term 3. We are pleased to share with you our CSIRO Education and Outreach updates to kick off your second half of the year.

We are fast approaching National Science Week; hopefully you will have received in your inbox already a special edition email sharing some of CSIRO's upcoming events. Visit our website for more information

Our regular programming is also thriving this term; read on to learn about new resources, professional learning opportunities, and a special offer from CSIRO Publishing. 

What does a space career look like?

Discover more about the myriad careers possible in the space industry on the Space Careers Wayfinder. Twelve video showcases share insights from thirteen individuals who have embarked on a career in the space industry, from science communicators to innovators and entrepreneurs. Supported by classroom-ready materials, these resources are suitable for career counsellors and teachers alike, lending themselves to many areas of the curriculum including history, civics and citizenship, and geography.
