This paper describes three case studies that were part of the Australian School Innovation in Science, Technology and Mathematics (ASISTM) project supported by the Australian Government to foster innovation in schools and develop the innovative capacities of students, by promoting teaching that engages students in science, mathematics and technology. Data were collected and analysed to demonstrate the effects that such projects have on student and teachers in the city, regional and remote Western Australia. Building sustainable educational solutions in science, mathematics and technology is a critical part of ASISTM project initiatives and need to be supported. The ASISTM project model provides a support mechanism to encourage schools to develop collaborative partnerships with other educational institutions, organisations and the wider community to bring ‘real life’ learning into the classroom. It also has the opportunity to promote the teaching profession to school students and Teacher Associates who work on these projects.
