Who is Australia’s Science Channel?

Australia’s Science Channel is operated and developed by The Royal Institution of Australia Inc., an independent charity and unique national science hub promoting public awareness and understanding of science.  The Royal Institution of Australia was founded in 2009 and is the sister organisation of the prestigious Royal Institution of Great Britain.

The best way to achieve the mission of The Royal Institution of Australia was to build Australia’s Science Channel.
