Big Science Competition 2023

What is the Big Science Competition?

Welcome to the Big Science Competition 2023 in PGA!

The Big Science Competition is a 50-minute, multiple-choice competition testing science knowledge, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Questions are set in real-life, contemporary contexts, making them relatable and interesting. And it's an easy way to challenge students from Years 7 to 10 (Australian school year). Competition questions are aligned with the Australian Curriculum - Science.

Students will receive certificates due to their performance in the competition. Sitting in the Big Science Competition could lead to selection in science extension programs, the Australian Science Olympiads and Curious Minds - girls in STEM.
