What are the Game Changer Awards?
The Game Changer Awards is an opportunity for teachers and their students who are interested in STEM, to create solutions to the worlds challenges, and compete at a state level for amazing prizes.
There are four age categories for Year 3 and 4, 5 and 6, 7 and 8, and 9 and 10 students. In each age group, there are then prizes for students and their teachers for Best use of STEM, Best overall Project and Best Presentation.
Students work on their projects throughout the year, with the support of their Teachers, and come together on Game Day, to present them to the judges. The teams are also given the opportunity to showcasae their projects to the families and other teachers, as well as industry and government representatives.
In the tradition of science fairs, we encourage students to unleash their inner innovator to create projects aimed at developing and utilising STEM skills, including project based learning, organisation, teamwork and presentation skills.
We currently have 78 teams registered to take part in 2019, and we plan to expand even further in 2020, to take the awards to all parts on WA.
