VICTA Young Achievers Award

Young Achievers Award


The first theme of the Young Achievers award is Science! Time to unlock your inner scientist and get experimenting…

To earn your first pin badge, you need to complete 3 science related tasks between January and March.

Your set activity you need to complete

For each theme you will find there is one activity that has been set by VICTA that you need to complete. The other two activities are your choice.

For Science you will need to complete one of the challenges on the 2023 VICTA online Science Fair. There are lots of challenges and tasks to choose from. Make sure you take photographs and videos of you trying out the experiments to use as evidence for your Young Achiever’s award! Visit: VICTA Science Fair Under 10s – VICTA

Science activity ideas!

You could… attend a science centre using VICTA’s facilitated ticket offer, join a science club (either at school or elsewhere), or create a fact file on a scientist.

We’ve put together some activity ideas and opportunities for the science theme below to help you get started. Don’t forget, if you’d like to come up with your own ideas, that’s brilliant too. Once you have completed 3 tasks, complete the evidence submission form at the bottom of this page so we can see what you’ve been up to.
