What are the Science and Engineering Investigation Awards?

The Science and Engineering Investigation Awards (SEIA) are a state-wide competition for Year 5 to 12 students who investigate a topic of their choice. Students then present their findings to judges from research and industry.

The judging is followed by a public presentation which is supported by Tasmanian industry and community organisations, and includes generous cash prizes.

Judging days are held on Cradle Coast - Burnie, Launceston and Hobart campuses in September each year.

The Science and Engineering Investigation Awards include the categories: Physical Sciences, Health and Wellbeing, Engineering, Agricultural Science, and, Environment and Marine Science.

Entries are open now and close Monday 20 August 2018.
