CSTA Subscriptions 2020 ... NOW PAYABLE ?

The committee is pleased to advise that subs' for 2010 (listed below), are the same as they have for the past 12 years.


Please Note:

Membership remains highly cost effective for schools, institutions or individuals, but the Association is very dependent on this financial  support.


In fact a current subscription is required for the use of any CSTA resources.


The committee anticipates that this will significantly encourage schools and individuals to support the CSTA , and allow the continuation of the professional sharing of science ideas, pedagogy and resources that are the ethos of this Incorporated Society.

  • Schools with a secondary roll 300 -  800: $60
  • Schools with a secondary roll less than 300:  $15
