The Armourers and Brasiers Tata Sixth Form Materials Prize, supported by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, 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.
The Nancy Rothwell Award celebrates specimen drawing in schools and highlights the benefits of combining art and science. There are three age categories (7-11, 12-14, and 15-18) and prizes are awarded
The Youth Industrial Strategy Competition is a new national STEM initiative that aims to inspire & challenge young people aged 11-to-19.
Focused around the four Grand Challenges of the UK Government’s Industrial Strategy, the Competition calls on students to come up with innovative solutions that have the potential to change our future industries, society and the environment.
Students can work on their own or as part of a team to create their own science or technology project based on the Grand Challenges.
All Youth Industrial Strategy Competition entries should be student-led, with a clear Grand Challenge themed idea at its core, including elements of teamwork, communication and reflective practice. There are some handy resources in the CREST library to help your students start their projects.
