Entry Information & Dates
STS is primarily a school-based science competition, with entry occurring through a central school STS coordinator.
Each school must be willing to support the competition by providing judges.
Sections – Project Categories
For detailed guideline and criteria, please refer to the STS Handbook here
Individual Entry (ONE student) = $9.00 per project entry
Group Entry (TWO students) = $17 per project entry
Class Experimental Research Project (primary school divisions only) = $30 per class project entry
All entries registered in the School Portal by the closing date on 26 May 2024 will be invoiced and must be paid, even if the entry is not subsequently submitted. This is because administration of the entries will have already occurred from this point on.
