About Quantum Victoria
A Centre of Excellence in STEM education that inspires creativity and 21st Century learning through innovative programs

Quantum Victoria is one of six Specialist Science and Mathematics Centres established by the Victorian Department of Education and Training and launched on the 27th April 2012. We are located at Charles La Trobe P-12 College, and are a leader in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education

Our Vision 

To cultivate curiosity and inspire creativity, motivating students and teachers to develop the capabilities needed in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics to succeed.

Our Mission 

Our diverse team works together to deliver an exciting, fully immersive experience that follows a highly effective, targeted approach to encourage excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

About Quantum Victoria

At Quantum Victoria, we aim to:

  • Increase student interest, participation and engagement in science and mathematics

  • Inspire students to pursue careers in the STEM disciplines

  • Expand the knowledge and skills of teachers through targeted professional learning underpinned by contemporary research and pedagogy.

About our programs

Our hybrid learning approach incorporates onsite programs, synchronous sessions and asynchronous modules with a particular focus on:

  • Scientific Inquiry

  • Mathematical Reasoning

  • Design Thinking

  • Building Resilience through Productive Failure

  • Games-based Learning

  • 3D Printing and Modelling

  • Coding and Arduinos

  • Robotics and Engineering

  • Augmented Reality and Simulated Experiences

  • Scenario-based Challenges 

Increasing student participation from disadvantaged and underrepresented cohorts continues to be a priority. Our gender inclusive programs promote and raise the profile of women in STEM pathways and provide role models for all students.

Our on-site programs and synchronous sessions are delivered using a co-teaching model that provides students with additional support resulting in a greater engagement and a deeper understanding of the concepts taught.

The F-10 programs align to the Victorian and Australian Curricula and are differentiated to accommodate student need. The Senior Years Science and Mathematics programs, online and asynchronous modules are aligned to the VCAA Study Designs.

Our values

The team at Quantum Victoria believes all children can excel in STEM. This is reflected through the suite of programs and modules that are underpinned by our values:

  • Learner Centred

  • Teamwork

  • Continuous Improvement

  • Passion for Learning

  • Inclusiveness
