Research Project Student Expo 2015

Expo highlights

More than 4,000 students, teachers and members of the community attended the Research Project Student Expo, 12 and 13 August 2015, at the Ridley Centre, Adelaide Showground.

The event was a unique opportunity for Year 10 and Year 11 students and their teachers to learn about an array of interesting and unique SACE Research Projects and talk to the young researchers behind them.

More than 100 student exhibitors spoke about their research on topics ranging from sustainable housing to nuclear energy; from motor racing to magic tricks; from dyslexia to sport psychology.

Industry experts, South Australian businesses and other organisations were also exhibiting with hands-on displays, ideas for research topics, and advice for students.
