Science Talent Search
The Science Talent Search (STS) is an annual, school-based science competition open to all primary and secondary students in Victoria, Australia. Science Talent Search fits closely with the Victorian Curriculum philosophy of teaching and learning. There is a close match between many STS sections and the Victorian Curriculum Learning Areas, Strands and Substrands.

School Portal

Schools must nominate a coordinator to manage registration and competitions requirements.

STS Handbook

If you plan to enter the competition it is essential that you read the handbook carefully.

Take note of all of the general information at the front of the book and ensure you check the specific guidelines for your chosen section.




Science Talent Search wishes to thank our sponsors for their generous support. It is our privilege that we have many individuals and organisations who are invested in encouraging students to pursue an interest in scientific investigations. Sponsorship enables the competition to operate, and without it there would be no bursary prizes! Please check out our wonderful sponsors here.
