ACE Science Mentors

ACE Science Mentors

ACE Science Mentors is an exciting and multi national-award-winning programme for students with a specific interest in science. Each year, up to 20 ACE Science students* complete investigations across a wide range of science and engineering disciplines, from physics to psychology, geophysics to rocketry.

Once accepted into ACE Science Mentors, students are partnered with a researcher or other expert in the student’s chosen field. The student is mentored through a medium term (up to 8 months) evidence based project. Students design, perform and report on their own science investigation, gathering first hand evidence and producing a fully referenced and refereed report. Science Mentors students are given their own work station in the Science Education Centre for the duration of their project and attend a minimum of one afternoon each week (Fridays unless otherwise negotiated) to work on their project in addition to experimentation and research outside of school.

Interested students should sign the Expression of Interest sheet in the Science Education Centre before the end of week 8. Further details from Mr Mac (geoffrey.mcnamara@ed.act.edu.au).

*This year, a maximum of 15 students is being accepted into the programme.
