The Science Talent Search (STS) is an annual competition organised by the Science Teachers’ Association of Victoria Inc. and this year we will be celebrating 71 years of student engagement in scientific investigations. The competition aims to encourage students in the pursuit of science studies and hopes to give the next generation of youths an opportunity to communicate their achievements and be recognised for excellence in Science.  

The 2022 Science Talent Search is now well under way with an average annual reach of over 150 participating schools, over 3000 students and 300 volunteer judges. 

The 2022 Exhibition Day ceremonies will be held virtually for all sections.   

Each year students submit their projects to one of the following categories for both primary and secondary sections: 

  • Class Experimental Research Project 
  • Experimental Research 
  • Computer Programs 
  • Working Models 
  • Creative Writing 
  • Inventions 
  • Games  
  • Science Photography 
  • Posters and Scientific Wallcharts 
  • Video Productions 

Once again we are seeking bursary donations to enable the competition to continue. Sponsorship of STS is an opportunity to support Science education and development of our young student scientists. 

By sponsoring STS you would be: 

  • Investing in science programs and projects  
  • Supporting science teachers  
  • Supporting local young scientists of tomorrow  
  • Making a difference in Victorian schools through their science talent search projects  
  • Increasing awareness of scientific endeavours  

Without the support of our generous sponsors’ donations, we would not be able to fund our student bursary awards. If you are interested in sponsoring the competition, please see the 2022 STS Sponsorship Brochure here.
