Ultimate STEM Challenge for Years 7 & 8

In November, students in Years 7 & 8 will take part in an exciting national STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) competition, organised by BP, one of the world's leading integrated oil and gas companies.

The students will be challenged to re-imagine the solution to a real-life problem. It could be something big, like a more efficient way to get clean energy or a small, everyday item, like a hair dryer or stove. They will use and develop numerous skills by working scientifically, using data and refining and testing their ideas.

The grand final will be held at the Science Museum in London. There are £1,000 worth of prizes to be won and each finalist will receive a bag full of Science Museum and STEM goodies. All entries shortlisted for the semi-finals will receive a prestigious Bronze CREST Award from the British Science Association.
