SSA National Schools Poster Competition (NSPC)

Primary & Secondary


What mentors are saying about their involvement...

"I was extremely impressed by the students' enthusiasm and their ability to think scientifically at such a young age. It was highly rewarding for me to interact with the students and I was also inspired by their keenness in science and statistics"

Kevin Wang, Senior Data Administrator, Population Health Intelligence Systems, NSW Health

"The poster competition provides students with a unique opportunity to combine the skills they have learned in Science, Mathematics and English to investigate a real world problem. I use the skills that are explored in the poster competition in my occupation to assist in experimental design."

Michael Mumford, Biometrician, Crop and Food Science Queensland

"The competition challenged the students to think about how to utilise and apply statistics to everyday questions or problems that intrigue them. Students are able to apply it to the topics that they are interested in and that results in some very interesting and different subject matters. It was a pleasure to mentor the students and see them develop through their participation in the project."
