While you have to choose one of the 2021 Science Writing titles for your project, you have the freedom to write in any genre you like - you could write a report, procedure, explanation on a theory or a persuasive piece of writing! 

The 2021 Science Writing titles are:

  • The World in 2050
  • Playing with Light
  • Physics: the very tiny & very large!
  • Global Warming is still so important - what is new in the field?
  • What happens to the International Space Station (ISS) after 2024?
  • Statistics going Viral
  • Science as a Human Endeavour (YEAR 11–12 LEVEL ONLY)

Here are a few tips:

  1. Source good information - making sure it's accurate and peer-reviewed. Some options are: Google Scholar, PubMed or Sage
  2. Use up-to-date sources; science is always changing! - make sure your research is relevant and credible (within the last 10 years)
  3. Be creative - the judges are always looking for something new and interesting
  4. Ask someone else to read your work before submitting - your science teacher is a good option to look at it from a science point of view and a family member or friend can see how well you communicate your topic.

Unleash your creativity and scientific knowledge to make this masterpiece come to life!
