Big Science Competition & Science Olympiad Awards
Loreto Toorak congratulates all students who competed in The Big Science Competition and the Science Olympiad Exams this year.
The Big Science Competition tests science knowledge, critical-thinking, and problem-solving skills. Questions are set in real-life, contemporary contexts. The test challenges students from Years 7 to 10 to compete against the entire country, with questions aligned to the Australian Curriculum. We commend the efforts of all 19 senior school participants in particular for achieving 8 Distinctions and 3 High Distinctions!
The Australian Science Olympiad Exams are a national enrichment program for secondary science students. The rigorous exams, and preparatory programs, provide rewarding opportunities for students to extend themselves well beyond the curriculum, and can even lead to international competitions. Year 11s can undertake the exam in Physics, Chemistry, or Biology. Years 7-10 can undertake the newly formed Junior Olympiad. We commend the efforts of all 13 senior school participants in particular for achieving 6 Distinctions and 2 High Distinctions!
