[ASC-list] Today at 1:30pm AEDT online: meet Sabine Schreuder, Scientists and Mathematicians in Schools (SMiS).

Dear ASC-List,

We have two member guests today.

Today's first member guest is the WA Project Officer with Scientists and
Mathematicians in Schools (SMiS), a national skilled volunteering program
managed by CSIRO. Sabine creates and supports long-term, professional
partnerships between school teachers and STEM (science, technology,
engineering and maths) professionals.

The idea is to:

· bring cutting edge STEM into the classroom by giving the teacher an
opportunity to develop activities with their STEM professional,

· give STEM professionals an opportunity to share their love of
science/maths/technology with a whole new audience and,

· give students the opportunity to engage with people who use the science
and maths they are learning in the ‘real’ world.

Over 2000 SMiS partnerships are in action across Australia right now, and
over 850 teachers are on waiting lists for a partnership – so we are always
on the lookout for more STEM professionals to volunteer with us. If your
organisation is looking to encourage staff to volunteer in schools, we may
be able to assist!

Having worked with SMiS for 7 years, Sabine has learned a thing or two
about engaging and supporting teachers and volunteer STEM professionals and
is more than happy to share her insights.
