Sunflower competition

Enter your students in the UQ Sunflower Competition and inspire them to become the next generation of plant and agricultural scientists.

The annual competition provides interactive learning opportunities through school-based experiments and an optional day of weigh ins and workshops at UQ Gatton. Now in its 21st year, it also supports teachers to deliver their science curriculum in a plant-based context.
