Little Scientists Big Science


John Monash Science School offered its inaugural ‘Little Scientists Big Science’ initiative for the first time in term three 2011.

The program was the brainchild of one of our Year 10 students, our 2013 School Captain, Lachlan Harkness. Lachlan thought it would be a good idea to engage young students in Science and give them an opportunity he did not get in his own Primary education. He was also keen to give the JMSS students an opportunity to develop and broaden their scientific communication skills, and so the project was born.

Over 300 Primary School students have participated in the program over the past eight years, concluding with each student presenting their final project in one of JMSS’s Science Presentation evenings. Feedback from schools, teachers, Principals, parents and students has been overwhelmingly positive.

Since the success of this program the John Monash Science School has also run a ‘Mini Mathematicians’ program since 2016, and in 2020 is introducing ‘RoboGals’, alongside these great programs, which aims to increase participation of girls in STEM.
