50 minute competition testing critical thinking and problem solving skills. Compete online. The Big Science Competition is an easy way to challenge students from years 7 to 12, and track their performance against state or national averages.
Questions test critical thinking and problem solving skills, not just factual recall. Questions are set in real-life, contemporary contexts, making them relatable (and interesting). Last year questions covered faecal matter, transplants, garbage gyers, life on Mars, 3D printing, control of feral cats, carbon capture, space junk and predicting earthquakes, just to name a few.
Date: anytime between 18 – 25 May
Cost:: $7* for online ($8 to include have the certificates posted out from me)
Registrations close: 13 May.
