Scientists in Schools

Partnership recognition - "You're making a difference"

In "A very valuable partnership" Evaluation of the Scientists in Schools Project 2011-2012, many teachers, scientists and mathematicians indicated their partnership was making a difference. The Scientists in Schools team would like to extend our congratulations for taking the time to inspire and engage the next generation through science and maths education.

It's always a great time to recognise the contribution of your partner. With this in mind, a Certificate of Appreciation for SiS and MiS have been developed for you along with some suggestions around using them.

Many organisations support their employees in their role as a SiS or MiS partner. They have embraced the program, seeing it as a part of their corporate citizenship program or simply a great way to make a contribution to the future of Australian science.
