Prime Minister’s Prizes for Excellence in Science Teaching

The Prime Minister’s Prizes for Excellence in Science Teaching in Primary and Secondary Schools are awarded for excellence in teaching in any area of science that is part of the nominated teacher’s state or territory science, mathematics or technology syllabus.

Each prize is awarded to an individual teacher who, through the impact of their inspirational teaching and the sharing of their methods and results with the science teaching profession, has made an outstanding contribution to science, mathematics or technology education. Teachers have a fundamental role in nurturing an interest in science, technology and mathematics in Australia’s youth. Their contributions, commitment and dedication to effective and creative teaching are celebrated in these two awards.

The prizes

The Science Teaching Prizes each comprise an award certificate, a silver medallion and lapel pin, and prizes money of $50 000.
