Rio Tinto Science Competition

May 6, 2021

Student registrations for the Rio Tinto Big Science Competition close on 12 May. Entry is free this year! If you would like to get involved register now!

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)! Just by entering, students go into the running to win one of ten great prizes, including a Segway Scooter, a Nintendo Switch, an Apple iPad, Kaiser Action Camera, book packs and gift vouchers!

The Big Science Competition is an easy way to challenge students from Years 7 to 10 and track their performance against state or national averages. The competition questions are aligned with the Australian Curriculum – Science.
