Get up to Speed with STEM is a chance to see some of the UK’s most exciting science, technology & engineering inventions, and meet the people who design, build and operate them! Speak to businesses, inventors, apprentices and education providers on the future of these industries, at this showcase event, all free of charge!
Are you an innovator? Do you have an idea which could make life easier, simpler or better?
Use your imagination, to think creatively. This is a chance to ask “What if?” or even build a fun example of what this might look like.
The TeenTech Awards are for UK students from 11-16 (Years 7 to 11) and 17-19 (Year 12-13) working in teams of up to three to look at problems large and small to see if they can find a better way of doing things.
There will be a prize of £1000 to the winning school in each innovation category and the overall winners will be presented with their awards by HRH Duke of York KG at Buckingham Palace.
The competition is organised by the National Cyber Security Centre, a part of GCHQ. It offers an opportunity for girls to gain cyber skills, solve problems, work as a team and have fun with friends.The first part of the competition takes place over one week and involves a series of online challenges.
BP has launched the Ultimate STEM Challenge for a fifth year in partnership with STEM Learning.
Students aged 11 to 14 are being asked to look at the world around them and use their STEM skills and knowledge to design a better solution.
By exploring the practical uses of science, engineering and technology the challenge is designed to stimulate creativity, build confidence and teamworking skills, and inspire young people to consider careers in STEM.
With a variety of theatre shows, hands-on activities, interactive workshops and careers information, tickets are currently available for The Big Bang Fair 2018. From sport and fashion to medicine and space, this event provides the perfect opportunity to discover the variety of opportunities available in STEM and the potential routes into them.
The Leaders Awards asks children, pupils and students if you were an engineer – what would you do?
It provides an opportunity for children and pupils to interview engineers about their career paths and motivation, it has evolved into a creative problem solving, literacy and entrepreneurial project which annually involves over 23,800 pupils.
As pupil’s interview engineers and research engineering in general they are encouraged to look at the world around them to find problems an engineered solution could solve. Alongside their annotated drawings an accompanying letter is required to persuade engineers to choose their design to build. Links to universities see these pupil’s dreams realised.
Students from any school in the UK can take part in a new online competition to design and/or programme drones to be used in the conservation of endangered animal species. Online entries will be judged by a panel of experts from the UK and China and four winners in each age group (9-11, 12-14, 15-17) will receive a drone to modify and then compete against international schools in a grand final on 4th July 2019. (Bursaries for travel/accommodation are available.)
The competition is organised by British International Education Association (BIEA), a not-for-profit organisation that supports British education providers on an international stage, especially in China.
