VANDA International Science Competition

Vanda International Science Compeition (VANDA)

What is VANDA?

Vanda International Science Competition is an international Science Competition held annually around the globe; It focuses on the student's ability to think critically and creatively to pick out information to aid them in solving the question. 

VANDA is for students from New Zealand Years 4 to 11 to challenge. 

This Online assessment is to measure the student’s science foundation the year before their current level; that is, Primary 2/Grade 2 is tested on the Primary 1/Grade 1 syllabus.


Since this is an online assessment, we will require a Laptop and sit at home to compete.


The top 50% of the participants will receive an award certificate. The top 40% of winners are invited to compete at STEAM AHEAD 2023 - VANDA Global Final from 7th to 11th December 2023. The top 40% of the participants will receive an award certificate and a medal.

The top 40% of participants will be invited to compete at the VANDA SCIENCE GLOBAL FINALS 2023, held simultaneously worldwide. 

VANDA helps students to be comfortable with various science Olympiad papers in the right environment. Vanda wants students to utilize this experience to continue to take part in more challenging Science Olympiad Competitions in the future.
