What is the Coffs Coast Regional Science Hub?

The Coffs Coast Regional Science Hub is a network of government and community organisations, plus local STEAM professionals, businesses, artists and schools, working together to connect our community with science for a sustainable future.

Initiated by Inspiring Australia, Regional Science Hubs are creating conscious citizens who care about and take action in this world

Inspiring Australia is about connecting scientists to the broader community and bridging the gap between science and society. The strategy is based on a ‘national framework-local action” approach. Science Hubs provide the grassroots, ground up means of achieving impact by facilitating the delivery of science outreach programs at a local level.

Providing community access to science and technology has many benefits, from sparking curiosity and helping people to understand how to take an evidence-based approach to making decisions about issues that affect them, to inspiring young people about the interesting careers that flow from science, technology, engineering and maths studies. Our Hub is focused on connecting our communities with science for a sustainable future.

 

Who Gets Involved?

Are you an arts organisation, a community organiser, a venue or a festival organiser?
The Coffs Coast Regional Science Hub is for you!

NSW Regional Science Hubs are often led by local, not-for-profit community groups, the arts and cultural sector or by the local council, in particular by a library or a museum. The lead organisation of the Coffs Coast Regional Science Hub is the Centre for Ecological Learning.
All kinds of organisations are able to get involved – from businesses and startups to chambers of commerce, sustainability education groups, theatre societies and community gardens.

We are calling for all kind of organisations to join the Hub. The fact is, science shapes so many of our daily activities that we’re not even aware of, that just about anyone can benefit.
