Youth Industrial Strategy Competition
The Youth Industrial Strategy Competition is a new national STEM initiative that aims to inspire and challenge young people aged 11 to 19
It provides real-world opportunities for young people to engage with cutting-edge research and product design ideas around the four areas of the Industrial Strategy: Artificial Intelligence & Data, Ageing Society, Clean Growth, and the Future of Mobility.
We are calling on young people to enter the Competition with innovative solutions that have the potential to change our future industries, society and the environment. Finalists for the Competition will attend the national finals of the Big Bang Fair in Birmingham in March 2020 and be judged for both.
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.
See Science will be able to offer some schools a free Discovery Day between July and October. If you are interested in hosting a Discovery Day please contact email@example.com in order to discuss further.
Entries which meet the Youth Industrial Strategy Competition criteria will also be eligible for a CREST Award, the British Science Association's award scheme for STEM project work that inspires young people to think and behave like scientists and engineers.
Entries for the competition need to be submitted by November 2019. Go here for more details
