There are a number of initiatives in Victorian schools to engage children in high-quality science curriculum. These include programs, partnerships, resources, facilities and professional development for teachers.

One of the most exciting is the establishment of six specialist science and mathematics centres offering innovative, on-site, online and outreach programs to promote science and maths education.
