Our Partners


Why connect the community with science? 

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. The Coffs Coast Regional Science Hub is focused on connecting our communities with science for a sustainable future.

What is Inspiring Australia?

Inspiring Australia have initiated Regional Science Hubs to create 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.

Who gets involved?

All kinds of organisations are able to get involved in Regional Science Hubs – from businesses and startups to chambers of commerce, sustainability education groups, theatre societies and community gardens. The fact is, science shapes so many of our daily activities that we’re not even aware of, that just about anyone can benefit. OzGREEN is the lead organisation of the Coffs Coast Regional Science Hub.
