Thank you for your interest in the STEM Boxes program. Registrations to receive a STEM Box for National Science Week 2021 have now closed.
If you have registered already you will hear from us shortly. For all other enquiries please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The boxes will arrive to your school in early August, for you to use during National Science Week 2021, 14-22 August. To be eligible to receive a box, you need to be teaching high school, years 7-12.
Each box will include written instructions, a video of one our students or teachers performing the activity to guide you, and all the materials you need for each activity. Please note that for some activities that require materials with a limited shelf life, we request you to source your own materials, as we cannot post them. We assure you that the activities have been chosen with easily source able household items in mind.

We will also include some resources for additional challenges and activities for your class if you are interested.
We would love to see you and your class using the boxes, so please take a photo or two and send them to us at email@example.com or tag us on Facebook or Instagram @ScienceANU.
We reserve the right to change the activities included in the boxes at any time. Limit of two boxes per school.
