THE QLD SCIENCE CONTEST 2021 – Ready, Steady, STEM!

Get your projects started – It is time to start thinking about your project – What will you investigate?

Engage your students with inquiry through STEM investigations and projects.

When students engage inquiry they are building and acting on their curiosity about the world and how it works. It helps them form lasting connections with learning and develops skills in critical and creative thinking, literacy and numeracy. Their disposition to STEM blooms as they engage in the rapidly changing word, pose ethical questions and see the value of science. Seeing a project through from start to finish encourages student agency as they take responsibility for their learning.

After the great success of using an online platform in 2020, we have decided to continue submissions online.
