Smart Sparrow is proud to announce our successful bid, lead by UNSW, for the Smart Science initiative as part of the Australian Maths and Science Partnerships Program.
“In May 2012, the Chief Scientist, Professor Ian Chubb AC, released the report “Mathematics, Engineering, and Science in the National Interest.” The report recognised that over the past 20 years, Australia has experienced a significant decline in the proportion of students taking advanced mathematics and science related subjects in year 12. Over the same period there has been a downward trend in the proportion of university students enrolled in maths, science and engineering courses. The Australian Maths and Science Partnerships Program was announced in the 2012 Budget as part of a broad package of measures to address this trend and improve outcomes in the learning and teaching of maths and science.”
