2023 Big Science Competition


The Big Science Competition is a competition testing science knowledge, critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. Questions are set in real-life, contemporary contexts, making them relatable (and interesting)!

The Big Science Competition is an easy way to challenge students from Years 7 to 10 and track their performance against state or national averages. Competition questions are aligned with the Australian Curriculum – Science.

Students receive a certificate indicating their performance. Sitting the Big Science Competition could lead to selection in science extension programs including the Australian Science Olympiads and Curious Minds – girls in STEM.

*All platinum award winners will also receive $50 prize money. Each student will need access to a Laptop, Desktop PC, Chromebook and a mouse and keyboard during the competition.


Compatibility exists with most tablet devices, but some of them have not been verified as fully supported, so we recommend using a laptop, desktop PC or Chromebook
