“It’s fantastic to see such a strong focus on STEM in WA schools, with more teachers actively tackling problems of STEM disengagement and recognising their top students,” Science Awards co-ordinator Megan O’Sullivan said.

“We hope that through this award, students will be encouraged to continue developing their science investigation skills in high school and beyond and maybe go on to achieve great things.”

Science Awards support science growth and interest in the community by providing a greater awareness of the critical role science plays in society.

Each award recipient will be recognised at their school’s graduation ceremony and receive a certificate, free pass to Scitech, science encyclopaedia, and discounted CSIRO Double Helix subscription.
