Competition Skill Building


The Science Talent Search (STS) is an annual, science-based competition open to all primary and secondary students in Victoria, Australia. Science Talent Search fits closely with the Victorian Curriculum philosophy of teaching and learning. There is a close match between many STS sections and the Victorian Curriculum Learning Areas, Strands and Substrands.

Theme and Topics:

The STS theme for 2020 is 'Deep Blue: innovations for the future of our oceans'
There are set topics for Creative Writing and Posters/Scientific Wallcharts sections only.

Science Talent Search has a partnership with The BHP Foundation Science and Engineering Awards. Students wishing to enter The BHP Foundation Science and Engineering Awards must register for Science Talent Search in the Experimental Research and/or Inventions Sections. Major bursary winners for the STS Experimental Research and Inventions sections are automatically entered into The BHP Foundation Science and Engineering Awards.
