If you have a question about registration, please contact the ASI office by emailing or call 02 6125 6228.

Students self-register for the Big Science Competition via our registration portal. It is the expectation that students will sit the competition as a cohort at school, under exam conditions to maintain the competition integrity. However, if their school is not participating in the Big Science Competition, students can register and sit the Big Science Competition without their school’s involvement.

Big Science Competition can be completed at any time during the competition dates, either at school or at home. 

In 2021, the Big Science Competition will be hosted online. There will not be a pen and paper option. 

The Big Science Competition is open to international schools and students. We encourage you to subscribe to our newsletter to stay up-to-date.

Home schooled students are welcome to take part and may sit the competition at home.
