We once again partnered with the Premier's Reading Challenge to create a STEM challenge!


The Premier’s Reading Challenge and Inspiring South Australia are teaming up to challenge you to read about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) in the lead up to Science Week. We are continuing with the additional sub-category this year – SPACE Science. There are great prizes to be won over four age categories.


All individual students will receive a certificate of participation.

A selection of prizes including books and vouchers will be awarded to:

  • best individual entry and runner up for each age group
  • the school with the most entries.
  •  For our new SPACE Science sub-category there will be special space related prizes.

You need to read at least one book from the Premier’s Reading Challenge booklist. The book must come from one of the following categories: STEM, Science, Science Fiction or Nature.

Starts 27 April and finishes 2 July.

Announcement of winners in National Science Week, August 2021.
