A love of learning science will be encouraged in a city-wide competition.

The Young Scientist of Wyndham competition is open to students in years 7 to 12.

Entrants – who can enter as individuals or pairs – are invited to submit project ideas around the theme of making a better tomorrow for Wyndham.

Entrants will then create a model or installation and a presentation, based on their idea – whether it is robotics, aeronautics, sustainable living or another topic.

On the final day of the competition, September 1, short-listed entrants will be invited to appear in front of a panel of judges with their models and presentation.

To enter the competition, students must complete an individual application form at youngscientistofwyndham.com.au and submit a three-minute video recording.

A maximum of six entries per school will be permitted. The last date for entries to be submitted is August 31.

The judging criteria will be based on innovation, communication, creation and presentation of the project in line with a better future for Wyndham.

Judging for Young Scientist of Wyndham, part of the The Wyndham Learning Festival, will be held on September 1 from 9am to 1pm, at Arndell Community Centre, 24-49 Federation Boulevard, Truganina.
