National Science Week is here! And this year, we're celebrating by getting STEM in schools around Australia.

In August, classrooms around the country will come alive with the joy of discovery and thrill of investigation in a national effort to inspire students in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). Experts in these fields will leave their labs, building sites and offices and return to school to share their passion with tomorrow’s leaders.

They'll be joined in the classroom by federal Members of Parliament, underlining the national importance of STEM for Australia's future.

The event is an extension of our Scientists and Mathematicians in Schools (SMiS) program, which partners STEM professionals with local schools to give students a taste of the real life, diverse career paths that exist now – as well as those that are yet to be imagined.
