Scientists and Mathematicians in Schools (SMiS)

CSIRO’s Scientists and Mathematicians in Schools (SMiS) is a national program that creates and supports flexible, ongoing partnerships between volunteer STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) professionals and teachers in primary and secondary schools across Australia. Volunteering for these programs provides the opportunity to engage with teachers and students to have a positive impact and make a difference to STEM education, to develop communication skills for different audiences and be part of a program that’s helping to inspire the next generation.

SMiS seeks to bring the practice of real world STEM to classrooms to inspire and motivate teachers and students in the teaching and learning of STEM. Additionally it aims to broaden awareness of the variety of careers available and increase STEM professionals’ engagement with the broader community. Currently there are over 1900 partnerships across Australia.

Scientists and Mathematicians in Schools is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations and CSIRO, and managed by CSIRO. To find out more information, please visit www.csiro.au/smis.
