The Big Science Competition can also lead to BIG opportunities, including selection into Curious Minds, a coaching program for girls. The Big Science Competition is also a great way to prepare for the Junior Science Olympiad. The Junior Science Olympiad is designed to take science students in years 7 to 10 to the next level.

From there, a selection of students will be invited to participate in the International Junior Science Olympiads. All Australian students are eligible to take the Junior Science Olympiad exam, and registrations open 31 May 2020. To be reminded when applications for the Australian Science Olympiads open, please register for our newsletter.

Because the Big Science Competition is mapped to the Australian Curriculum—Science, teachers receive a detailed reports about student performance. We also provide guidance on how these reports can be used to improve learning at a student, class and school level.

There are so many reasons to get involved with the Big Science Competition this year, and with free registration, why wouldn’t you?
