Science of the Snowy competition 2020

The future is bright!

Students of the Snowy Mountains have submitted almost 200 creative ideas this year.

To celebrate National Science Week 2020, students in years 3-6 (stage 2 and 3) living across the Snowy Mountains have designed power stations of the future that generate 100% Australian-made renewable energy.

Competition winners will receive an overnight Taronga Zoo experience for up to two adults and two children to attend their choice of a Roar and Snore package at Taronga Zoo, Sydney, or a Zoofari Lodge package at Taronga Western Plains Zoo, Dubbo, plus a tour of Tumut 3 Power Station for their class.
