  1. What is the Tasmanian Science Talent Search?

The Tasmanian Science Talent Search (TSTS) is an initiative of the Science Teachers Association of the Tasmania Inc (STAT). TSTS is supported by an enthusiastic and committed group of sponsors. STAT’s philosophy is to celebrate quality science teaching and learning in all Tasmanian Schools through the recognition of outstanding work in a variety of scientific areas.
Sections: There are seven sections in TSTS to allow for individual students’ preferred learning styles. These are made up of theme related sections and open sections

See information beginning on page 1 for details of the themed sections.

Divisions: Each section is divided into year group divisions.

  • In Primary, the divisions are Early Childhood (K-2), Lower Primary (3-4) and Upper Primary (5-6).

  • In Secondary, the division are Junior Secondary (7-8) Intermediate Secondary (9-10) and Senior Secondary (11-12).

How do students register their entry?

NOTE: This is new in 2018

STAT is moving to an online registration of entry. Development for this process is still under development. Details will be made available by the end of Term 1 2018 – watch the STAT website on the TSTS page for details http://stat.org.au/tsts

  • Every entry will still require an entry form for each student or group of students to be attached to their submitted entry – See page 8 for entry form. There is a small entry fee.

  • Schools with more than 5 entries are asked to provide a typed cover list of the student names for entries including details of division, section & teacher details.

Payment: STAT will invoice the school for all entries submitted following the closing date for entries. Please check that the School Business manager’s details are recorded on the entry form in the appropriate place and share the process with your school business manager.
DO NOT SEND CASH WITH ENTRIES – YOUR SCHOOL WILL BE INVOICED. NB STAT uses PayPal to generate invoices to protect potential credit card payments. Schools/students may also pay by bank transfer – details will be on the invoice.
What are the entry fees?

  • The entry fee is $5.00 per project

  • Individual, group and class entries are $5.00 per entry. Students may enter as individuals or small groups (up to 3) Class entries are only acceptable from Early Childhood and Lower Primary Divisions.

Are there benefits if you are a STAT member?

  • STAT members receive a 60% discount when submitting 10 or more entries, providing invoices are paid by the due date.

  • To receive the membership rate individuals and schools need to be financial members by May 1st 2018.
