Dedicated science teachers from two South Australian schools have been awarded Prime Minister's Prizes for Excellence in Science teaching, with other prestigious awards in Science also being awarded to a number of trail blazers.
This year a record number of women have received these awards, with mathematician Cheryl Praeger taking out the top prize for her work which has led to significant advances in algebra research and computer cryptography.
Congratulations to all the winners for your inspirational work. We hope that you will continue to motivate a fascination with science and encourage more young people to seek out careers in STEM.
