It’s been a year unlike any other, with massive disruptions to the way we work, play and learn. And that means the educational foundations are more important than ever.

These school holidays, it's time to take the Storytime Pledge.

A book. A child. A reader. A promise.

Join Australia's science community in standing up (or sitting down) to prioritise sharing a book with a child in your life, and help our next generation reach their fullest potential.
