The 2016 ASTA- Japan Science Teachers Exchange is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia-Japan Foundation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
The teachers are given the opportunity to observe Japanese primary and secondary science classes, including a Super Science School, and lead classes of their own (with an interpreter) as a guest teacher. Delegates will also take part in forums with Japanese teachers to exchange ideas and practices and discuss the differences and similarities between Japanese and Australian science education.
Tours also include personalised visits to amazing Japanese cultural and scientific icons such as:
- The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation – MIRAIKAN
- The Sensoji Temple
- Edo Tokyo Museum.
- The National Museum of Nature and Science.
- Sony Corporation's exclusive showroom (not open to the public).
