Who we are...
Earth Ed is a state-wide specialist STEM educational centre, bringing STEM education to life for students, teachers, and the wider community through the lens of Earth Sciences.

Earth Ed is positioning itself as a national and international provider and leader of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education.
To inspire the next generation of science innovators, it is important to expose Victoria’s youth and teachers to STEM-related careers, and to offer chances to practice and develop STEM-related skills.
