The Royal Institution of Australia

 IS BUILDING AUSTRALIA’S FUTURE THROUGH SCIENCE

 

We are building a growing community who watch, read, listen and share their thoughts on what’s happening in science. We are committed and passionate about inspiring the next generation of innovators to build a stronger Australia, engaged with and entertained by science on a daily basis.

 

“The wide diffusion of knowledge about science is so important
that the art of doing so is well worth learning” –

Share Our Vision

Our vision is to weave science into the fabric of Australia’s society. We aim for people to understand science and its’ relevance in day-to-day decision-making, and to empower people to understand the world’s many challenges. We want to restore the value of science, technology, engineering and mathematics as a career path in the eyes of young Australians.

We work with leading minds and scientific organisations to build and connect communities engaged with science. Help us keep Australia’s Science Channel free by supporting The Royal Institution of Australia.
