CPAS is part of a growing network of science communicators. It has links with communication programs in universities across Australia, Europe and the Americas and with science centres on all continents including Asia and Africa.
The Indonesian Science Centres Capability Development project began in 2012, in partnership with Questacon - Australia’s National Science and Technology Centre, and Indonesia’s national science centre, Pusat Peragaan Ilmu Pengetahuan dan Teknologi (PP-IPTEK) in Jakarta.
SCREN is a network of science communication researchers and educators who collectively share best practices in science communication training and engage collaboratively in science communication research.
Jointly run by the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science at The Australian National University and Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre, the Shell Questacon Science Circus travels to remote and regional areas of Australia performing science shows and workshops for schools and communities.
In March 2000 CPAS became an accredited Centre for the Australian National Commission for UNESCO, with the task of collaborating both within Australia and with neighbouring Pacific countries in raising the awareness of science in many diverse communities.
