SACE Research Project Student Expo is designed to inform students who are about to commence their Research Project.

Established in 2014, the two-day expo attracts more than 4,000 senior secondary students, largely in years 10 and 11, from across the government, independent and Catholic school sectors.

The expo features past students exhibiting and discussing their projects, such as Young Australian of the Year, Paul Vasileff, who is making a keynote address.

The South Australian-born founder of internationally-renowned couture house Paolo Sebastian is living his dream – all of which began in his senior secondary year at school.

Vasileff launched Paolo Sebastian in his final year at school, after receiving full marks for his Staging a fashion show extension studies subject, the precursor to today’s Research Project.

Secondary school students (both past and present) from 16 South Australian schools will showcase their unique Research Projects to the thousands of visitors at the expo, and 19 research-focused organisations from various industries will provide information, with interactive displays and presentations.

Visiting students can expect to:

  • be introduced to the subject
  • gain ideas for research topics in a variety of areas
  • get insights into research strategies and how to overcome challenges.

Capacity is limited for this free event, so early registration is recommended – teachers are invited to register student groups for a two-hour timeslot.

Timeslots available to school groups across Wednesday 8 and Thursday 9 August are:

  • 9.00 am to 11.00 am
  • 11.00 am to 1.00 pm
  • 1.00 pm to 3.00 pm

The expo is held at the Adelaide Showground, 8-9 August 2017. More information is available at the SACE website.
