The Year 12 Science and Maths Academy at Flinders

Darlene Voss

The Year 12 Science and Maths Academy at Flinders (SMAF) is a pilot program based on a partnership between the university and seven schools in southern Adelaide. The program is designed to improve academic achievement in physics, chemistry and specialist mathematics, and to support students' subsequent transition to university. The SMAF provides a sophisticated and secure learning environment for school-aged students, as well as the opportunity for them to experience and preview university life. The chance for interactions with other like-minded students and Flinders University student mentors, in the adult learning environment of a university, provides students with new opportunities to understand their subjects and insights into future pathways, and inspires them to achieve their best.
