The Central Highlands Science Centre (CHSC) is recognised as the most remote, non-government funded, not-for-profit science centre in Australia. A community organisation with one aim - to inspire the minds of future generations.
In addition to community science events like astronomy nights, open days, educational expos and school excursions, the CHSC also runs the ever-popular Curiosity & Science Clubs for children primary school aged and younger who have a keen interest in everything Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM). These term time science clubs currently run in Emerald and Blackwater though we are hoping to expand to neighbouring towns in the near future. CHSC was founded in Capella in 1995, and is now run in Emerald from the Spencer Smith Pavilion at the Emerald Showgrounds. The Region we service extends beyond Central Highlands region, and is bigger than Tasmania!
