COSMOS’ overall aim is to create open schools with partnerships within their communities that foster science education for all citizens. To achieve this aim, we have three interconnected objectives as illustrated:
Development of partnerships, contributing to a more scientifically interested and literate society and students with better awareness of, and interest in science careers within partners’ communities.
Provide citizens and future researchers with the tools and skills to make informed decisions.
Contribute towards ERA objective of increasing the number of scientists and researchers (long-term impact)
