In 2015, the Xavier Science Department will provide an opportunity for students to challenge themselves in the Big Science Competition.
Year 7 will take part in this 50 minute international competition which aims to test students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills as well as their science knowledge.
Each student who takes part will receive a certificate as well as detailed feedback on their performance in the competition. They also go into a draw to win hundreds of iTune and movie vouchers.
Our school will receive a comprehensive report for each paper level showing how each student performed on each question, the percentage of students in Year 7 who answered correctly, and a comparison with the national results.
The Big Science Competition will be held in school on Friday May 22 2015
The Big Science Competition is organised by Australian Science Innovations, a non-profit organisation committed to providing high quality science extension programs that inspire, challenge and raise the aspirations of students in science.
