Congratulations to Victorian seed funding recipients

To celebrate the release of our new series, Cambridge Science for the Victorian Curriculum, Cambridge University Press Australia and New Zealand has teamed up with The Royal Society of Victoria to sponsor seed grants for secondary school STEM projects.

Every year, the Australian Science Teachers’ Association (ASTA) offers Science Week grants to support schools wishing to celebrate National Science Week. Cambridge University Press Australia and New Zealand has sponsored grants of $500 each to be awarded to four additional secondary schools to support their activities for National Science Week in 2019. The grant round was administered by the Royal Society of Victoria.
