This year, STAVCON was held on Monday 28 November 2022 at La Trobe University, Union Hall, Moat Drive, Bundoora from 8.00am – 4.45pm in a much-anticipated face-to-face format. STAVCON, as you may know, is one of STAV’s flagship conferences. Its audience is diverse and includes teachers of primary and secondary science and STEM, laboratory technicians, and members of the education research community and tertiary sector. In terms of the depth, breadth and richness of offerings, STAVCON is unique.
