MTAQ is a group of over 400 members who have established a long-term commitment to:
fostering curiosity, imagination, knowledge and enthusiasm for 'real world' science through the provision of education in Marine and Aquatic skills and knowledge at the Primary, Middle and Secondary school levels.
establishing community and government partnership projects to enhance these phases of learning.
The end result of these partnerships is an impressive list of Publications, Professional Development Programs, Agreements, Certificates, Memorandums of Understanding, Marine and Aquatic curriculum exchange, Workshops, and Conferences.
In 2004, Minister of Education Anna Bligh awarded MTAQ members major awards for syllabus development.
In 2010, Minister for Education and Training Mr Geoff Wilson awarded our Association the prestigious Doherty Award for fostering community and government partnerships.
