More students, more prizes!

More students, more prizes!

This year, the BIG Science Fair is expanding! We are increasing the number of students who can participate and spreading the fair over two days…and we’re aiming to increase the number of prizes too. We’re excited about this growth, and we hope you are too!

The Science Fair provides an excellent opportunity for businesses, industry, and community members to contribute to developing future scientists and engineers.

Last year, generous businesses and community members donated $10,000 to the BIG Science Fair. We are now seeking help to raise $20,000 for this year’s event.

We understand that not everyone can provide financial support, but there are other ways to contribute, such as being a judge or assisting us on the day.

The BIG Science Fair will take place on the 3rd and 4th of September 2024, in Burnie. It is open to students from Years 5 to 12 in the Northwest and West Coast. Your support will make a significant impact on the success of this event and the future of our young scientists and engineers.

The BIG Science Fair provides the opportunity for students to:

  • Use the STEM skills they are learning to undertake a hands-on project.
  • Explore ideas and issues that interest them in science or engineering through experimentation or prototyping.
  • Interact with judges from industry, community, and STEM careers.
  • Practice and develop their skills in communicating their ideas and research to others.
  • To be recognised for their work, skills, and curiosity.

Thank you for considering being a part of this exciting opportunity!
