Congratulations to Alex from Year 8 who won the Outstanding Mentee Award for the 2020 In2Science Awards.

The award recognises Alex’s growth and commitment to the program.

Alex said that the program has been “really rewarding and made me more motivated and inspired to work in science.”

Victorian STEM Education Ambassador Dr Tien Kieu MP, acknowledged the importance of the program. “As a professional scientist…I still find science is difficult. It is so important for students to have someone who can explain the concepts and answer the questions, but equally important is for people to share their own experiences.”

Virtual School Victoria recently celebrated its fifth year of partnering with In2Science, an innovative program that connects high school science and maths students with enthusiastic university students who are studying degrees in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

VSV was one of the first schools to partner with In2Science when it launched its pilot eMentoring program in 2016. Since then, approximately 40 VSV students have benefited from the program.
