NATA Young Scientists of the Year Awards


​NATA Young Scientists of the Year Awards

STEM Young Scientists of the Year Awards competition is now open!

Entries are now open for the Young Scientists of the Year Award.  The competition is FREE to enter and encourages primary school students to consider what science is and examine how it impacts on people's everyday lives.

This year's theme is 'Medical Science - Towards 2050'.  Students are required to undertake an investigation around any topic relating to the theme of medical science both now and in the future.  This can be addressed in any way you like, depending on the age/stage of your students.

Students from primary school (aged 7 to 12 years) across Australia are invited to enter the competition to win cash prizes.

Need some ideas?

  • Students could investigate antibiotics which could lead to discussions about resistance or improvements;
  • or they could investigate medical equipment such as syringes or x-rays;
  • or medicines used to treat conditions such as heart disease or arthritis.

Visit the website for more information(competition guidelines, entry form).

Entries close Friday 28 September, 2018.
