What is the Big Science Competition?
The Big Science Competition is a 50 minute, multiple choice competition testing science knowledge, critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. Questions are set in real-life, contemporary contexts, making them relatable (and interesting). Take a look at some sample questions.
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). Competition questions are aligned with the Australian Curriculum – Science.
Students receive a certificate indicating their performance and those that perform well may be identified for other science enrichment programs such as the Australian Science Olympiads and Curious Minds – girls in STEM.
The Big Science Competition is available in pen & paper and online format.
