Our Mission / Objective

Australian Science Innovations (ASI) is Australia’s premier provider of challenging science programs, competitions and residential camps for high achieving science students. 

Our vision is to contribute to building Australia’s scientific community through inspiring and developing our best science students.

Our Services

ASI works in partnership with teachers, schools and organisations to deliver four key programs: 

Australian Science Olympiads

2019 Asian Physics Olympiad

Curious Minds – girls in STEM 

Big Science Competition

Asian Science Camp (coordination of the Australian delegation)

Our Beneficiaries

ASI programs benefit high school students, teachers and educators; girls, and students from regional schools, and students who attend schools in low socioeconomic areas.  

Projects in Progress

Australian Science Olympiads

The Australian Science Olympiads are a national program for top performing secondary science students that culminate in the International Science Olympiads.

The program is a rewarding opportunity for year 10 and 11 students to extend themselves way beyond school science through challenging exams, stimulating residential programs and international competitions.

2019 Asian Physics Olympiad

The Asian Physics Olympiad (APhO) will bring 200 of the region’s best and brightest teenagers from 25 countries to Australia for nine days of academic competitions and cultural activities.

Curious Minds – girls in STEM 

Curious Minds is a national academic and mentoring program for girls in STEM from regional, rural, Indigenous and low socioeconomic areas.

Big Science Competition

The Big Science Competition tests high school student’s critical thinking and problem solving skills, not just their factual recall. Questions are set in real-life, contemporary contexts, making them relatable (and interesting). Teachers and students across Australia, New Zealand and Asia take part in the competition to be challenged, and to track their performance against state and national averages.   

Asian Science Camp (coordination of the Australian delegation)

The Asian Science Camp brings together around 200 talented young people in celebration of science and friendship.

The camp aims to promote international cooperation and networks among high-achieving young science students of the next generation in Asia and Oceania.
