What is The Oliphant Science Awards?
The Oliphant Science Awards is an annual competition for South Australian school students from Reception to Year 12 aimed at developing their interest in science through a range of competition categories to suit a wide variety of abilities and interests. Learning science encourages students to develop a range of skills such as observation, prediction and communication as well as expanding their knowledge within and between the diverse domains of science. The Oliphant Science Awards provide students with an opportunity to expand their scientific literacy, by showing interest and understanding in the world around them and engaging in discussions about science.
The South Australian Science Teachers Association (SASTA) has conducted The Oliphant Science Awards every year since their inception in 1981, with Sir Mark Oliphant the patron of this competition named in his honour and running with his legacy. The Awards recognise the excellent work of students with prizes in each age group and category, along with Sponsor and school prizes for outstanding achievements.
