AUSSEF 2023 / ISEF 2024
Welcome to the 2023 edition of the Australian Science and Engineering Fair (AUSSEF). We are inviting Australian school students from Years 9-12 who have completed a substantial project in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics to enter their project into our national fair. Students should upload their project reports to our online Project Submission page by Friday 17th November, 2023. Check out the Rules and Guidelines Page and you might be in line to represent Australia at the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in 2024!
A two-staged national judging process will select the nine students who submitted the best STEM project into our AUSSEF competition. The students will win an all-expenses-paid-trip to compete at the Regeneron ISEF in Los Angeles, California from May 11-17, 2024 (pending funding).
AUSSEF is committed to providing opportunities for students studying within Regional and Remote areas and for First Nations students. Hence, we strongly encourage Regional, Remote and First Nations students to enter.
In our first year of competition, our AUSSEF team performed tremendously well on the world stage, receiving three Grand Awards and one Sponsored Award at the 2023 Regeneron ISEF in Dallas, Texas:
1st Grand Award – Robotics and Intelligent Machines: Kai Turner, Northern Beaches Secondary College Manly Campus (USD $5,000)
4th Grand Award – Chemistry: Thien Tran, Queensland Academy of Health Sciences (USD $500)
4th Grand Award – Physics and Astronomy: Olivia Silcock, William Clarke College (USD $500)
SAE International Sponsored Award: Kai Turner, Northern Beaches Secondary College Manly Campus (USD $2,000)
Our nine representative students are featured on our ISEF 2023 Finalists page. You can find links to their projects there.
