National Science Week provides a chance to focus on the impact science, engineering, technology and mathematics has on our lives, our economy, our society and our world. To help Australian schools celebrate National Science Week, the Australian Science Teachers Association (ASTA), with support from the Australian Government, through the Science Teachers Association of Victoria (STAV), provides funding for school-initiated National Science Week projects in Victorian schools. What is a National Science Week school grant? Grants up to $500 are available to all schools (preschool through to senior secondary) in Australia to help them conduct science activities/events during National Science Week 10-18 August 2013. Proposed activities that involve neighbouring schools will be viewed favourably. These grants are intended to be a contribution to the running of a National Science Week activity or event in a school not the sole means of support. Applications must be received by 26th April 2013. Note - this is earlier than previous years! For more information click here.
