The STELR (Science and Technology Education Leveraging Relevance) Program is a hands-on, inquiry-based, in-curriculum program designed for Year 9 or Year 10 students, on the theme of global warming and renewable energy. It is a national secondary school science education initiative of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE). The aim is to have third generation thin film solar cells (and their manufacture) included in the STELR curriculum.
