2021 Prime Minister’s Prizes for excellence in Science Teaching

Nominations recently opened for the Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science, including the Teaching Prize for Primary and Secondary Teaching.

These awards are about giving our world-leading researchers and inventors the recognition they deserve, along with the teachers inspiring our next generation of scientists.

The past 12 months have brought the work of Australia’s science community into the spotlight. The COVID-19 response is just a small insight into the incredible work of the Australian scientific community, with last year’s Prizes acknowledging breakthroughs from fundamental physics to lifesaving new cancer treatments.

We have many dedicated teachers working to instil a love of enquiry and to further the STEM skills of our local students. It’s part of what makes our local community so special.

The Federal Government encourages you to nominate any teacher you believe has made an outstanding contribution to inspire their students in the science disciplines.

Nominations close on 9 March and you can view the guidelines here: https://www.business.gov.au/grants-and-programs/prime-ministers-prizes-for-science-science-teaching-prizes
