This project-based learning activity involves teams of 2 to 5 secondary school students creating an informative poster presentation based on the collection and interpretation of data towards addressing a practical research question. There are three divisions: Years 7-8; 9-10; 11-12. Participants and interested schools should subscribe and consider the rules, sample projects, additional tips and judging criteria available at http://www.ssaipostercomp.info/. Entry is free. Prizes are awarded and people may also be available to attend your school to help facilitate the project.
