About STS

The Science Talent Search (STS) is organised and managed by a volunteer committee with administrative support from the Science Teachers’ Association of Victoria.

Entry to the competition is primarily schools-based through a central school STS coordinator.


STS has three broad aims:

  • To stimulate an ongoing interest in the study of sciences by:
         Encouraging independent self-motivated project work amongst students of science;
         Giving students the opportunity to communicate their achievements to a wider audience;
         According recognition of effort and achievement in a scientific enterprise.
  • To promote the direct involvement of the students in the processes of science and its communication.
  • To give the public at large an opportunity to see the quality of work being achieved in science, by both primary and post primary students.
