The Game Changer Awards is not a STEM program, it is a STEM competition. The competition presents an ideal opportunity for children in Years 3 to 10 to showcase their innovative solutions to the worlds challenges (UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals), using project based learning, STEM skills, organisation, teamwork and presentation skills.
This year, we welcome submissions from teams and individuals, from all types of schooling backgrounds from all over WA.
Schools will be able to showcase their STEM Programs and receive recognition for them. Teachers, students and parents will have the opportunity to engage, share ideas and start new friendships with people from other schools, companies that sponsor the program and VIP guests from the local government and Universities.
Schools need to register their projects via the “Register Here” button found at the top of every page of this website. Registrations require a poster that showcases the project and the process that was followed to deliver it on time.
All successful entries will have the opportunity to showcase their project at the GCA State Finals & Awards Ceremony which is being held on Thursday, 2nd November 2023 at the Edith Cowan University Sport and Fitness Centre in Joondalup.
Student teams will be required to set up a project display (science fair) on the day and teams will have the opportunity to present their STEM project to a panel of judges. These judges will assess the merit of their projects during the day to determine the award winners. Prizes are awarded to students and teachers in each year group for Best Overall Project, Best Use of STEM and Best Presentation.
Please understand that spaces for Project Showcase and Awards Ceremony are limited, so be sure to get your entries in quick so that your school doesn’t miss out.
In the tradition of science fairs, we encourage students to unleash their inner innovator to create projects aimed at developing and utilising STEM skills.
