This paper describes sources of science and technology education in a metropolitan area. The sources are classified into three groups: government or semigovernment, private organisations and tertiary institutions. Issues relating to these sources include the adquacy of the provision of information for interested adults, the ‘user pays’ principle in relation to some of these sources and the notion of ‘public understanding of science’.
