Teacher Awards

About the Teacher Awards

The BHP Foundation Science and Engineering Teacher Awards recognise outstanding contributions made by classroom teachers to science education.

Teacher finalists are selected from around Australia. A teacher is nominated by each Science Teachers Association (STA), chosen for their excellence in teaching, their support of open-ended student investigations and their suitability to represent their state or territory. CSIRO Education and Outreach also nominated a teacher from the Creativity in Research, Engineering, Science and Technology (CREST) Awards program, selected on the same criteria.
