ACT School Events
Tall Poppy events are open to all Primary and High Schools interested in helping students meet, and interact with, leading young science researchers.
There is a range of event possibilities and we are always interested in discussing individual circumstances where a passionate young scientist could value-add to an existing event or where we can tailor an activity perfect for your school. We do not charge schools for any of our events.
The Tall Poppy Campaign can coordinate activities such as:
> School Visits
School visits can be from one class to a whole grade and can include 1 or 2 scientists.
Please contact us if you would like to enquire about a school visit.
> Science-themed Seminars
Seminars involving Tall Poppies are planned right across the country. If you have an idea for a seminar that supports the science outcomes of your students then contact us to discuss. You can also get in touch if you would like to be invited to a seminar if they happen in your area.
If you are interested in booking a visit from the Tall Poppies, email the relevant Tall Poppy Campaign State Manager.
The Tall Poppy Campaign has been at the forefront of providing school videoconference content to schools and students for many years. Videoconferencing is an excellent way to help bring science to life for those classes in regional or remote areas or who find it difficult to travel to outreach events.
If you’d like to find out more information or discuss being involved, contact us here.
> Workshops for Teachers
The Tall Poppy Campaign can also assist in the development or execution of Professional Development or workshops for teachers.
Please contact us if you would like to schedule or be invited to a workshop.
> Tall Poppy regional tours
Regional tours, which involve a handful of Tall Poppies visiting a number of regional or remote schools in an area, are possible. If schools in your area are interested in having a physical visit from some scientists then please get in contact to discuss.
> Register your interest
