An outstanding Queensland teacher has won one of Australia’s most prestigious awards available to teachers.

Megan Hayes has been awarded a $50,000 prize as part of the Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science, which recognise achievements in scientific research and excellence in science, mathematics or technology teaching.

Mr Hayes told Neil Breen she always aims to connect her students with the real world.

“In our world where everything is already online, … I think my role is to partner that with those 21st century skills.

“[We] allow the children to make mistakes along the way while they’re doing that and learn from their mistakes.”
