170 Years Young

On 15 June, 2024 we mark 17 decades of promoting and advancing science in Victoria. From our earliest days we have worked to develop the knowledge base of our communities, governments and industries, and to understand the unique nature of Victoria’s landscapes, plants and animals through sharing and exploring expertise in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM).
