Science Investigation Awards


The Science Investigation Awards are an annual competition for students in years 4 to 10. AgC visits schools and teaches students about experimental design and research methodology, then students choose their own research project on any topic.

Examples include:

  • the effect of different fertilisers on plant growth
  • the impact of diet on egg yolk colour
  • assessing water macro invertebrate populations to determine its environmental health

AgC supports students and teachers with school visits, assisting with experimental design support such as setting aims, methodology and replications, and helping judge the winning posters. Winning entries from each school move through to the Royal Adelaide Show, where an ‘inter-school’ grand final is held. Students can win cash prizes and the Royal Show Blue Ribbon.
