Academy hosts chemistry-themed art competition for school students

April 30, 2019

Get your paintbrushes ready: submissions are open for scienceXart: elements in everyday life, a chemistry-themed art competition for primary and secondary school students hosted by the Academy’s National Committee for Chemistry.

The competition will run over Term 2, 2019 with entry categories suitable for all year levels.

Developed in close partnership with the Academy’s education experts and the Australian Science Teachers Association, scienceXart (science and art) establishes clear curriculum links and aligns closely with learning outcomes for Australian students.

The scienceXart competition is part of year-long celebrations for the International Year of the Periodic Table and the 100th anniversary of the formation of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). 

Teachers and classes can sign up to the mailing list to keep up to date and receive competition packs. Submissions open 29 April and close 28 June. A selection of prizes for winning entries will be announced.
