Science Talent Search 2013

by Chris Guest

For the 11th consecutive year, the Australian Skeptics are a proud sponsor of the Science Teachers of Victoria’s annual Science Talent Search. 2013 marks the sixty-second year of this important event.

Each year thousands of Victorian school students from lower Primary to Year 12 enter science projects in the categories of experimental research, working models and inventions, computer programs, science photography, games, essays and posters in a state wide competition.

This is a small sample of entries in last year’s Working Models and inventions category. (Click on the picture to enlarge it).

Last year Australian Skeptics Science and Education Foundation funded 62 bursaries to over 100 participants. Some of the memorable projects included:
Reducing Apple’s environmental footprint
Cutting Onions
Water pollution and its effects on sea turtles
Which type of material is the most flammable?
Street light energy saver

We are very pleased to recognise the early achievements of these emerging scientists, engineers, programmers and critical thinkers.

This years PRESENTATION DAY will be held on 6th November 2013. We look forward to meeting this year’s participants.
