NYSYAThere’s still time to enter NATA’s Young Scientists of the Year Awards!

This competition was developed with the aim of fostering an interest in science among schoolchildren, and in response to concerns that Australia's scientific expertise is in decline.

This year’s theme of ‘Science in our lives’ has been chosen to give students a broad range of topics to choose from as well as thinking about how science affects their everyday lives. They can investigate any area of their lives in which science has had an impact – from food and clothing to weather forecasting!

The aims of the competition are to:

  • Promote to children the benefits and value of science
  • Provide students with the opportunity to participate in science on a national platform
  • Encourage students to apply their creativity to scientific solutions
  • Demonstrate the importance of good presentation skills
     

Entry to the NATA Young Scientists of the Year Award is free and open to individuals and class groups in primary schools across Australia.

There are three age groups eligible for this competition (birthdays as at 30 June 2016) from primary schools: 7 & 8 year olds; 9 & 10 year olds and 11 & 12 year olds.

Information on the competition and how to enter can be found on the website
