“The BEST Network provides the opportunity to take material that can be challenging and present it to students in an interactive virtual world. Students are not limited by resources, geographic location or environment. This means that students at all universities across Australia, and around the world, can experience these activities, not just those at well-funded, urban universities. This is truly the democratisation of education!”
Professor Louise Lutze-Mann
School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences, UNSW Sydney
“Educational programs that may have origins over 100 or 150 years are going to move into a new era of greater connectedness”

It's about being part of this movement. We don't want to be left behind, we want to be right there at the edge.”
