Thousands of copies of That's RAD! Science books have been distributed to Queensland children at STEM outreach events and primary school libraries.

- We are interested in how innovation and entrepreneurship can build inclusive and sustainable economies, and creative and cohesive communities. Are you in?
The program is underpinned by principles of gamification and designed to meet the requirements of the health and physical education curriculum. Students have fun while learning about serious topics such as alcohol and drugs.
