Outreach: Scientists in Schools
Mark is a partner scientist in the CSIRO program Scientists in Schools (and the associated program Mathematicians in Schools). This is a way for academics to engage with school teachers and bring fresh perspectives on maths and science to classrooms. He is partnered with teacher Ms Rachael Chisholm at Randwick Public School, NSW.
