Scientists in Schools Program

Scientists and Mathematicians in Schools (SMiS) is a national program that seeks to bring volunteer scientists, including applied scientists, engineers and mathematicians, together with teachers into an ongoing professional partnership, with the aim of increasing awareness of contemporary scientific endeavour and knowledge within our school communities. You can find more information on the program at and in the attached document What How Why.

The partnerships are completely flexible - both partners bring their professional expertise and professional requirements into the mix and they decide together how they will proceed, with support from the Scientists in Schools team.

Since the program began in July 2007, a total of 5341 partnerships have been established in 2581 schools across Australia. Currently, 1927 partnerships are active in 1300 schools as at 30 June 2016.
