LET'S GET SOCIAL WITH SCIENCE
Lab Rats is a fun online community for Australian teens interested in any area of science and technology. The channel is for teens themselves, predominantly aged between 14 -18, to inspire them to become engaged with other like-minded kids.
The go-to for exciting science news, competitions and projects, Lab Rats has both Facebook and Instagram channels where teens can interact. The Facebook page also includes a moderated, closed group for members so that they can safely connect and chat with other teens who share similar interests, wherever they may live.

WHAT IS STEM?
It’s just an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths and helps to group these fields. These are all to do with understanding our world around us and creating a better life for all (human and non-human).
Each area of STEM needs the others – science needs maths to explain it, engineering needs science to make it work, and technology bundles
it all together.
