The school grants round are now open and close on 14 May 2012. Successful applicants will be notified by 28 May 2012 which will allow plenty of planning time prior to National Science Week.
Schools can apply for grants of up to $500 to help them conduct science activities during National Science Week 11-19 August. (Note: the $1000 seed grants offered in 2010 and 2011 have been discontinued).
The school grants program is administered by the Australian Science Teachers Association (ASTA).
