Unlocking Inspiration

report fireballsA report reviewing the Unlocking Australia’s Potential program has been published. The report, Unlocking Inspiration, measures the success of the program in engaging more Australians in science, in establishing a suite of ongoing sustainable projects for Australia as well as highlights in areas such as citizen science, youth, indigenous engagement and commercial partnerships.

The Unlocking Australia’s Potential program was developed based on a key recommendation contained in the 2010 “Inspiring Australia” report and proved a significant success in reaching people who are not normally highly-engaged in science, including indigenous Australians, migrants, youth and people living outside major metropolitan centres.

The program, worth $5 million, supported 63 projects and hundreds of events across all states and territories between December 2011 and 2014 with an estimated audience reach of 470 000 people. And, of great significance, over two-thirds of the projects are now continuing on their own resources.report cover

The Unlocking Australia’s Potential program represents a strong success story of a government program that exceeded its goals and expectations, and demonstrates how effectively Australians can be reached with innovative science engagement strategies.
