How does this session contribute to Seeing Science Differently?
Scouting is a non-formal educational movement that provides young Australians, aged 6 to 25, with fun and challenging opportunities to grow through adventure. The movement has a strong philosophy of learning by doing. The SciScouts project, led by Scouts ACT, aims to build enquiring minds and exploration of the natural world though Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) activities.
