Our Tall Poppy Campaign aims to celebrate excellence in science and encourage interest and engagement with science.

Would you like a Tall Poppy Scientist to visit your school, library or community organisation?

Our inspirational Tall Poppies have conducted many successful outreach engagements both in person and online.

Search for a Tall Poppy using keywords and connect with us at outreach@aips.net.au and we will do our best to assist.

Please note that all of our Tall Poppy alumni are full-time scientists and may not be available to assist with all requests.

"Every other year we run a STEM week here at Fintona Girls School. It is reassuring for us to know that we can readily call on Tall Poppies to help organise guest speakers to present to our students. The Tall Poppy speakers are expert in their fields, have relevant and relatable insights to share, and can engage and inspire students on their level. Tall Poppy speakers are a vital component in our quest to promote STEM subjects and career paths to our students"
