What is the Big Science Competition?

The Big Science Competition is an easy way to challenge students from years 7 to 10 and track their performance against state or national averages (find out how you can use the results).

It’s a 50 minute, multiple choice competition testing critical thinking and problem solving skills, not just factual recall, so you can find out what’s really going on inside their heads. Questions are set in real-life, contemporary contexts, making them relatable (and interesting). Take a look at some sample questions.

Competition questions in the Big Science Competition are aligned with the Australian Curriculum – Science.

Take a look at how the Big Science Competition differs from other competitions.
