About STAV

The Science Teachers Association of Victoria (STAV) advances science education by offering professional learning opportunities for Science educators to engage students and the wider community in the real-life applications of Science.

STAV represents the collective voice of all teachers of science in all matters relating to the teaching of science in Victoria, and through ASTA (the Australian Science Teachers Association) it represents these teachers at a national level.

The primary function of STAV is to provide useful and accessible services to members. STAV’s focus includes women in STEM, sustainability education, and respect for First Nation knowledge and science practices.
