STAV Science Talent Search

Science Teachers Association of Victoria: ‘Science Talent Search’

The Royal Society of Victoria sponsors and provides funding support for STAV’s Science Talent Search (STS), 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 Sub-strands.

STS Handbook

If you plan to enter the competition it is essential that you read the handbook carefully. Take note of all of the general information at the front of the book and ensure you check the specific guidelines for your chosen section. STS handbook
