EVER DREAMT OF EXPERIENCING SPACE?
We are very pleased to be opening our 2017 Science World Championships up to all Australian and New Zealand schools, offering unlimited free student registrations thanks to our ongoing relationship with the Australian Science Teachers Association.
Taking part in the event is extremely easy to set up. Schools simply send in a list of students to compete. Students then answer as many questions they can during the event to earn points. Content is based on the Australian and New Zealand Curricula (depending on your school location).
To top it off, in partnership with Edu School Tours we have also announced an amazing Major Prize: a trip for one student and their parent/guardian to Space Camp in Huntsville Alabama. The prize includes return airfares, five night Space Camp Program including on-site accommodation and all meals, and separate accommodation and breakfast for the chaperone.
The winner of the Space Camp Prize from the 2015 competition was Chloe Gordon from Kilbreda College, VIC. She has chosen to attend Space Camp in January 2017.
By participating in the 2017 Science Championships, every 500 points earned by a student (around 2 hours of competing) will automatically get them 1 entry in the draw. The more points earned, the more chances they'll have to win. There is also a great prize pool of smaller prizes.
CONGRATULATIONS to Hayley Harris, from Albany Senior High School in Auckland, who is our Grand Prize winner for the Education Perfect Science Championships 2016 and has won a trip to Space Camp! Read more about Hayley's experience competing and winning this sought-after prize here.
HERE'S A QUICK OVERVIEW OF WHAT THE GRAND PRIZE WINNER WILL EXPERIENCE:
Enjoy a challenging, space life experience with scuba based microgravity orientation, advanced missions and engineering training.
Advanced Space Academy is an adventure that enables high school students to forge futures, make friends and explore careers.
Students participate in a rigorous program that teaches them about the mental, emotional and physical demands astronauts’ face and provides leadership training as well as learning the importance of teamwork.
Trainees are immersed in science, technology, engineering and math education with a focus on university and career progression.
Extended duration missions also provide greater teamwork opportunities for trainees to prepare for becoming the next generation of space leaders and explorers.

Along with some incredible prizes, students receive certificates (mailed to the school) based on the number of points earned in the competition. Can you view the full prize list here.

SHOWCASES FROM THE 2015 EVENT:
“The greatest thing about it is it’s not based on how smart they are. It’s accessible to every student and measured on how many questions they answer. If they are Year 7 girls and think their questions are too easy they can do any level above which is excellent. Some of the girls are just thriving because it’s very self-directed.”
