Terms of Use

The CSIRO Education portal allows you to sign up to education programs and activities run by CSIRO Education and Outreach. It also allows you to manage your own details through your profile.

If you would like to participate in any of our programs or sign up for any of our materials or events, register at education.csiro.au

When registering on the portal, you will be asked to authenticate yourself using a third party authentication service.  CSIRO has provided you with some options that meet CSIRO’s strict security requirements.  Please note that these authentication services are provided by third parties and may have separate terms and conditions that apply to them.

Please note the following terms and conditions apply to your use of the CSIRO Education and Outreach portal in addition to the CSIRO Legal notice and disclaimer which can be found at http://www.csiro.au/en/About/Footer/Legal-notice.  Specific terms and conditions may also apply to your participation in CSIRO Education and Outreach programs and you will be asked to review and agree to these at the time of registration for those programs.

If you do not follow these terms and conditions, CSIRO may restrict or remove your usage rights to some or all of the CSIRO Education and Outreach programs.
