The Australian Science and Mathematics School conducts an International Science Fair (ISF) for invited students from partner schools around the world on an annual basis. Students make an active contribution to the events of the ISF through presentations and poster displays of aspects of the research work they undertake at their own schools. Challenge Based Learning activities have become a large focus of the ISF in later years with much success.
The inaugural ISF was held in 2004 with three international schools’ involvement and we have continued to run the event with increasing participation. Since 2004, the ISF has addressed themes such as Bio Innovation, Scientists Working to Save the Environment, Investigating Science and Social Responsibility, Celebrating the Year of Chemistry, Sustainable Energy for All, Inspiration Through Collaboration, Innovation in STEM and Science without Borders.
