2012 Registrations Open for Big Science Competition and Australian Science Olympiad Exams

The Big Science Competition and the Australian Science Olympiad Exams are an opportunity for Secondary science students to test their skills and vie for the opportunity to participate in the Australian Science Olympiad Summer School and the Science Olympiad.

The Big Science Competition tests critical thinking, problem-solving skills, the methods of scientific inquiry as well as knowledge of science concepts. There are three papers written for the Big Science Competition: Junior (Year 7 and 8), Intermediate (Years 9 and 10) and Senior (Years 11 and 12).

The Australian Science Olympiad Exams are challenging exams in biology, chemistry and physics. They are open to all students in Year 11 or younger. Separate exams are held in biology, chemistry and physics, on different days to allow students to sit multiple exams. They test the ability of students to solve problems as well as their understanding of science concepts. All students sitting Science Olympiad Exams receive a certificate indicating the grade they scored and 72 students who do exceptionally well are invited to attend the Australian Science Olympiad Summer School at Monash University in Janauary.
