News & Highlights

PwC announces National Strategic Partnership with Little Scientists Australia.

Little Scientists Australia is excited and proud to announce that we have been chosen by PwC for a strategic relationship. As a not-for-profit organisation with the overarching objective of making high quality education accessible to all children we strongly identify with PwCs purpose ‘of building trust in society and solving important problems’.

‘We need better STEM content and skills development in the early years of education but it can be difficult to get support for spending because the economic payback doesn’t happen until the individual is through the education system and earning a wage. We’re working with Little Scientists to address the problem at the start’
PwC Managing Partner and STEM leader, Tony Peake.
