2021 YOUNG SCIENTIST AWARDS PRESENTATION DAY 4 – SESSION 2 – Grand Awards

Welcome back to the presentations of the Grand Awards for 2021.

We will announce the STA NSW student and teacher nominees to the National BHPFSEA (BHP Foundation Science and Engineering Awards) competition.

These will be followed by the announcement of our Grand Awards in Primary – the Budding Young Scientist (K-2) and Primary Young Scientist (3-6) as well as a new Rural Primary Young Scientist for projects completed by students living in rural or regional areas of NSW. All of these awards are sponsored by Rowe Scientific Pty Ltd.

In 2021, we are pleased to announce a new category of Grand Awards targeting outstanding work in STEM conducted by students in rural and regional areas. The Rural Awards are sponsored by Passionately Curious – our most recent sponsor.

The Rowe Scientific Science Communication award winner will also be our Broadcom representative to the virtual Broadcom Masters competition in May 2022.

Finally we will end with the announcement of the ISEF Finalists for the virtual 2022 Regeneron ISEF (International Science and Engineering Fair) and the Primary Young Scientist of the Year 2021.

And that’s a wrap!

What a wonderful end to a tumultous year! Congratulations to all our award winners!

First Phase of Judging complete for 2021!

Despite the challenges of the extended lockdown across many parts of the state, we were pleased to receive close to 800 projects from 661 students. Our team of volunteer judges and the Young Scientist organising committee have worked overtime to complete the first phase of judging in record time.

We are looking forward to notifying the winners of Category Awards by email in the next few days.

Congratulations are extended to all students who entered – particularly for the perseverance they demonstrated in completing work of such quality during this pandemic. The Sponsored Awards are currently being judged and we will notify students as soon as we receive those notifications from the sponsors.

All details of the awards won by students will be announced in a series of online events between Monday 22nd November and Thursday 25th November. Please stay tuned and check back here and on our social media (FacebookInstagram and Twitter) for details of programs and timings.

Last call for Judges in 2021 competition

There is still time to be involved in the premier STEM competition in NSW. Despite the challenges of the extended COVID lockdown, we are excited to have received close to 600 scientific investigations from very dedicated and committed young scientists from across the state.

Judging of secondary projects begins on Saturday October 9th and judging of primary projects begins on Saturday October 16th. All judging (and training) is online and details can be found here.

Participating in Young Scientist Training and Judging is excellent professional development and a wonderful opportunity to view first-hand the extraordinary scientific investigative skills and creativity of NSW students. Come and be involved – we promise you will be inspired!

Submission Deadline Extended Again!

Given the ongoing situation with COVID related lockdowns, we have made the decision to extend the submission deadline by another week. This will also ensure there is no clash with HSC Science extension deadlines.

ALL projects – Primary and Secondary in all three categories – Scientific and mathematical Investigations and Technology Projects – are now due on Friday, 24th September, 2021.

We would like to put a call out to all teachers to register for judging the awards this year. Please visit the Opportunities for Teachers page for more information and to sign up.

CHANGE TO KEY DATES

In light of the ongoing lockdown situation in Sydney and other parts of NSW, the committee has made the decision to extend the deadline for project submissions to the end of Term 3.

ALL projects (Primary and Secondary Scientific and Mathematical investigations as well as Technology projects) will now need to be submitted before midnight, Friday, 17th September, 2021.

We hope that this additional time for students who cannot access materials and equipment at school, or have limited access to teachers and mentors will prove beneficial.

As a consequence of this change, our training and judging schedule will also be pushed back into Term 4. Please visit the Opportunities for Teachers Page for details of timings of judging sessions. All schools entering projects are required to provide at least one teacher per 10 projects for judging.

Our Presentation Ceremony will also need to be held in the last week of November (Week of November 22nd).

Thank you for your understanding and support of our competition in these difficult times.
