ABOUT GCA

West Australia’s STEM Competition

Game Changer Awards Logo

Do you, your children or your students see a problem that can be solved using STEM?

Would you like to give those in year 3 – year 10, an opportunity to present their ideas and final solutions, on a state level, to win amazing prizes? If so, then the Game Changer Awards (GCA) is where you can do just that!

GCA’s purpose is to acknowledge and reward children, and their teachers/homeschooling parents, who strive to develop their STEM and creative problem-solving, collaboration and presentation skills.

Suggested Themes

Teams may choose a project that addresses any one of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. If a team needs some help in making a choice, we have highlighted four themes below, to get the brainstorming underway!

People

Gamechanger Category People

Of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) 11 of them relate directly to people. From eliminating Poverty, Hunger and inequality, to developing responsible consumption practices, improving people’s Health and Wellbeing, and providing decent work and economic growth. How can we change the world for all people?

Prosperity

Gamechangers category prosperity

The majority of the human race live in less than ideal conditions that impact their access to medicine, education and opportunities. How can we overcome poverty and inequality to address them?

Place

Gamechanger Category Place

Our world is inhabited by many living and non-living things. How can we improve how humans interact with them and the environment, to ensure the survival of us all?

Space

Gamechanger Category Space

Humans have always looked to the stars, planets and universe to understand whether we are alone. What do you see as being the solution to seeing the first man on Mars? Or finding life on another planet?
