SASTA Oliphant Science Awards


The SASTA Oliphant Science Awards will be going ahead in 2020!

With COVID-19 having a huge impact on all of our lives at the moment, we are surrounded by and dependent on science!

Working on a project can happen at school or at home -- so start thinking about your project ideas!
We know these are tricky times, but if you’re looking for something to do these school holidays when you might normally be out and about, then maybe it’s the perfect time to do some photography, start programming, or invent a new game!

Show us what you can do!
