This is the first of two papers that draw on a study of the national BHP Billiton Science Awards, a peak competition funded by BHP Billiton and administered by CSIRO. BHP Billiton, CSIRO and ASTA together oversee the strategic direction of the Awards. This paper reports an analysis focussed on the outcomes for students of participation in open scientific investigations. The second paper deals with school and teacher strategies supporting the conduct of such student open science investigations and the implications that can be drawn from the data.
