STS Committee – Keeping the Competition Alive

STS relies almost solely on volunteers to administer and manage the competition. Without the volunteer committee of almost 30 people, the competition cannot operate.

Why Join the Committee?

By joining the STS committee you will be helping to ensure that the competition continues to run. Just as importantly you will be having direct input into the way in which it operates and helping to maintain and improve its quality. You will gain in-depth insights into how the competition runs and the rationale behind its requirements. You will also better understand the standards required for bursary-winning projects.

There are also other professional learning and networking benefits. Being on the committee provides a wealth of professional learning opportunities, ranging from coordination and management skills, assessment skills, public speaking, communication and relationship building skills, to the opportunity to network with colleagues from other schools.

Your role on committee will benefit STS and its students, it will help you to develop professionally, and it will allow you to directly contribute to your professional association – the Science Teachers’ Association of Victoria Inc.

Action learning opportunities

Opportunities for action learning within the committee structure are substantial.

STS committee involvement can be referenced to many VIT standards of professional practice.
