Investigate Science and Technology Competition
What is Investigate?
The Investigate Science and Technology Competition is an initiative of the NSW Department of Primary Industries School Program. By participating in the Investigate competition students will understand the role that science plays in their everyday lives. Real-world content guides the application of these skills in a meaningful learning context that delivers cross-curriculum outcomes.
Resources have been produced to support teachers through a series of learning experiences and activities. This includes an inquiry Unit of Work; cross-curriculum priorities and general capabilities; and biosecurity research material. You choose to use some or all of the activities to develop a teaching and learning program suited to your local needs and situation.
- The competition is open to all NSW Stage 3 students and teachers. Entry is free and all entries are recognised with a certificate of participation.
- The top four projects will also receive a cash prize.
- 1st prize - $1,000, 2nd prize - $750, 3rd prize - $500 and Highly Commended $250.
