Young Scientist Competition:
This is still up and running for any young scientists. Simple to do and lots of fun. Just choose something your child would love to research and take part in their own investigation project at home. For Kindergarten to Year 12 students, Young Scientist offers worthwhile incentives to carry out scientific investigations, mathematical investigations and/or creating an innovative device.
The STANSW Young Scientist Awards are structured into three major categories (i) Working Scientifically (ii) Working Technologically and (iii) Working Mathematically. The major awards in each of these categories are headed up by the respective professional teachers’ body who are collaborating together to promote STEM education in NSW schools.
