The Victorian Space Science Education Centre (VSSEC) is a specialist STEM learning facility, one of six established by the Victorian State Government. Since its official opening in 2006, VSSEC has used the context of space to enhance the learning experiences in Mathematics, Science, Technology and Engineering for both teachers and students.
