ASTRO 3D is committed to inspiring students to consider a career in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Attracting STEM students into astronomy and training them for large-scale use of the next generation of telescopes and super computers is critical for maintaining Australian leadership on the international stage.

We will attract students into STEM and astronomy by providing more interaction between professional ASTRO 3D astronomers and education providers. We will develop new teacher education programs, including high-quality astronomy teaching materials, which will significantly impact the quality of science education within the Australian F-10 Science Curriculum.
