On Thursday 26 May, twenty students took the opportunity to challenge themselves in the Big Science Competition.

This 50-minute international competition is open to students of all abilities. Questions test students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills as well as their science knowledge.

Each student who takes part receives a certificate as well as detailed feedback on their performance in the competition.  Our college 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 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.


We look forward to celebrating each student’s achievement with a morning tea in Semester 2.
