Mag-Net is an incorporated group of science, technology, engineering and maths educators.  It was formed from a network of teachers that ran the Mag-Net Science and technology centred based at Monash University and at the University of Melbourne in the 1990's.  Mag-Net has been incorporated in Victoria since 2014.

It now a formal/informal network of educators concerned with the interpretation and incorporation of STEM ideas   in the formal classroom.
