What problem would you like to see scientists solve for the future?

The ANSTO Big Ideas Forum brings 22 students and 11 teachers from across Australia to Sydney to meet world-class researchers and go hands-on with amazing technology. We are looking for people who are creative and passionate – you don’t have to be top of your class. Young people using STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) are the ones who will take our society into the future, so tell us your big idea for a chance to spend an exciting week with our researchers. This event is free – flights, travel, accommodation and meals are covered by ANSTO.

Hear the experiences of previous years' students and their scientist mentors below.
