ABOUT THE FAIR
Science helps find answers to questions we have about the physical world around us. Technology uses those discoveries to solve problems and improve lives. Its been said "Science and engineering research has become the most powerful force for change in our society," and we agree. The Fair is about encouraging young people towards problem solving and creative discovery. This builds both the students abilities and our countries responsiveness to a wide variety of future challenges. Solutions to pressing problems will continue to emerge in unexpected ways from new knowledge. But they don't happen by themselves, it takes some work!
We recommend downloading our information books and forms for the Fair. They summarise some of the important information that is here on the website. There are all kinds of things to think about like safety, ethics approval, and planning!
