The Australia–Japan Foundation (AJF) has released a full list of successful grant recipients for 2015–2016.
ASTA could not run the Science Teachers Exchange—JAPAN without the invaluable support of the AJF. This support is particularly welcome in light of the new Australian Curriculum: Science's focus on Asia.
ASTA advocates the notion of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) being a highly integrated field, and the important role it plays in Australia's ongoing relationship with our global neighbours in Asia. Innovation is an international event. Observing how STEM is taught in Japan and science's role in Japanese culture and industry is of great benefit to Australian teachers.
ASTA would like to thank the AJF for its continued support of this program. You can see the full list of grant recipients on the Department of Foreign Affairs website.
