STEM student awards

The COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t dampened the enthusiasm of NSW’s best and brightest STEM students, with this year’s STANSW Young Scientist Awards still forging ahead under an entirely remote mechanism.

”The Young Scientist Award Scheme aims to stimulate curiosity through inquiry to undertake innovative investigations. Informed by the world of science, mathematics and technology, students are encouraged to find creative solutions to everyday problems to make our lives better. It is a NSW syllabus-based K to 12 STEM initiative.

Projects can be entered into one (or more) of three STEM categories:

  1. Working scientifically.
  2. Working technologically.
  3. Working mathematically.

There are separate tiers for primary and secondary and projects may be entered in more than one category under a separate online entry.

Entries are due in September — click here to see the due dates for each category. Full details on the awards, including information on prizes and entry conditions, can be found by visiting the Young Scientist website.
