You can now book your place to attend The Big Bang Yorkshire and Humber, taking place at Doncaster Racecourse on Tuesday 26 June 2018. The event aims to engage young people in STEM through a fun and educational experience.
Projects can be submitted for entry into The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition at one of the Big Bang Near Me Fairs (of which Yorkshire and Humber is one) from March to October 2018. We are looking for great projects to showcase to judges who will ask the students questions and score them on their work.
The Armourers and Brasiers Tata Sixth Form Materials Prize, supported by IOM3, is a new competition designed to support schools in encouraging students to develop a sustained interest in STEM careers. It has been set up to give students structured opportunities to find out more about Materials Science and Engineering and enhance and enrich their studies.
These are free 4 day residential courses for teachers that cover everything you could possibly want or need to know about plastics and the polymer industry. The tours include all accommodation, transport, meals and refreshments. In addition teachers can apply for a bursary of up to £200 to contribute towards the cost of cover or travel.
The Tomorrow’s Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge is a programme supported by the Helsington Foundation and delivered by EngineeringUK through the Tomorrow’s Engineers programme. The Tomorrow’s Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge aims to reach UK secondary school students, to discover and inspire a future generation of expert engineers.
The event is free and organised by The Royal College of Pathologists, and suitable for sixth form students studying biology and chemistry. This event is a workshop that introduces students to several ethical issues, including consent for autopsies, tissue donation, medical research involving babies and children, commercialisation of human tissue, legislation, display of human tissue, and saviour siblings.
Patterns in nature’ is the theme of this year’s competition. Life on Earth encompasses a myriad of regular forms, sequences and structures and we invite you to capture these details of biology. The judges are looking for an original interpretation of the theme.
You might wish to explore how animals use spots, stripes and other shapes to camouflage and signal; or capture the collective arrangement of wildlife in colonies, herds and shoals. Your photograph could depict the spirals and symmetries of the plant kingdom to the meanders and tessellations as seen in wider landscapes. They also welcome entries that explore this theme at a molecular or cellular level, illustrating regular patterns that can only be observed with the aid of a microscope such as cell division and gene expression.
The British Science Festival is Europe’s longest standing science Festival, traveling to a different place in the United Kingdom each year. The Festival aims to connect people with scientists, engineers, technologists and social scientists.
Each year, they bring an inspiring programme of free events to the public over four or five days, bursting with exciting opportunities to get involved in. The talks, workshops and drop-in events span a diverse range of subjects that encompass science in the broadest sense, promising something for everyone!
