Big Science Competition for Year 7’s

In 2016, the Science Department will provide an opportunity for students to challenge themselves in the Big Science Competition.

This 50 minute international competition is open to Year 7 students.  The students will be doing the comp online in their timetabled Period 2 class that day on Monday 23rd May

Questions 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, Google Play 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 the cohort who answered correctly, and a comparison with the national results.

The Big Science Competition is not a TEST just a competition.

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.
