BP has launched the Ultimate STEM Challenge, a competition in partnership with the Science Museum and STEMNET. This year, students aged 11-14 across the UK are being challenged to use their Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths skills to develop energy efficient solutions to real-world challenges.
Students will have the chance to compete for prizes, including a cash prize of £500 to spend on science equipment or a field trip. The celebratory final event will take place during British Science Week at the Science Museum in London. To find out more visit: www.bp.com/ultimatestemchallenge
How to enter
- Teams of up to 4 students choose from one of three challenges: Streamlined Ships, Better Buildings or Trim Turbines.
- The teams will then need to create a short film or presentation showcasing their project. The challenges can be completed at a STEM club, in class or as an independent project.
Entries must be uploaded on the BP Educational Service (BPES) website www.bp.com/bpes by 15 January 2016.
Support for schools
Teachers will be provided with teaching materials to launch the competition with their STEM club or class. This includes case studies, social media chats with BP scientists and engineers, and support from local STEM Ambassadors (subject to availability).
