The Big Science Competition is an international competition suitable for students in years 7 to 12. The competition tests critical thinking and problem solving skills - not just science facts.

The time to complete the competition has decreased to 50 minutes, making it more convenient to run in normal class time. The competition can be sat either online or in pen & paper format any time between 20 and 27 May  inclusive. So you now choose the day, time and format of the competition. See our website for full competition etails.

 After the competition schools receive a diagnostic report showing how each student performed on each question, and how the school group performed against state/territory and national results.

Student achievement is recognised with certificates detailing their performance, and they could win iTune and movie vouchers just for taking part.

Cost per student is $7.00 (plus GST) for the online format or $7.50 (plus GST) for the pen & paper format.
