The BHP Billiton Science and Engineering Teacher Awards recognise outstanding contributions made by classroom teachers to science education.
Teacher finalists are selected from around Australia. Each Science Teachers Association is invited to nominate one teacher, chosen for their excellence in teaching, their support of open-ended student investigations and their suitability to represent their state or territory. The CREST program may also nominate a teacher, selected on the same criteria. Use this nomination form to nominate a teacher.
The BHP Billiton Science and Engineering Awards are a partnership between BHP Billiton, the world's largest diversified resources company, CSIRO, Australia's premier scientific research organisation and ASTA, the Australian Science Teachers Association.
The Awards are also supported by Intel Corporation, the world’s largest semiconductor manufacturer.
