Also, thank you to all the teachers and parents who supported and facilitated our students in putting together their entries.
The Queensland Science Contest aims to stimulate an ongoing interest in the study of science by encouraging students of all ages to participate in the process of self-motivated project work. The contest also gives Queensland students the opportunity to communicate their passion and understanding of science to a wider audience and receive recognition for their effort and achievement. They can be directly involved in the processes and communication of science.
It is also a celebration of the exemplary science currently being carried out by Queensland students by Queensland Academies.
Thank-you to all of the students who took the time and effort to submit Maths and/or Science IA and Extended Essay work into the Qld Science Contest.
