Young Tall Poppies: engaging students in science

Elektra Spathopoulos

The Tall Poppy Campaign engages high achievers in the sciences, including mathematics and engineering, to promote science and scientific literacy in schools and the broader community. Through the program they visit schools and conduct innovative activities, sharing their expertise in ways relevant to the curriculum. They share their personal stories and describe their career paths, making face-to-face connections with students, and also assist in the professional development of teachers, especially in rural and disadvantaged areas, and participate in broader community and policy sector debates and outreach activities.
