Since 1981 the BHP Billiton Science and Engineering Awards have been Australia's most prestigious school science awards.

The awards reward young people who have undertaken practical research projects which demonstrate innovative approaches and thorough scientific or engineering procedures.

The awards are sponsored by the BHP Billiton Foundation, a charity funded by BHP Billiton (a leading global resources company), and are managed by CSIRO, Australia’s premier scientific research organisation.

The third partner in the awards is the Australian Science Teachers Association, ASTA, and includes the state and territory based Science Teacher Associations.

The awards are also supported by Intel Corporation, the world’s largest semiconductor manufacturer.
