Further information:

Our goal is for projects submitted to fit in with your curriculum and current coursework that is being developed within lessons.

  • We are not asking for participants to undertake a separate piece of work but to please submit EXCERPTS from their projects that they are working on within GCSE curriculum, A Level curriculum, BTEC or similar.
  • Two categories for age-groups 13-16 and 16-19 years.
  • We are looking for analysis and innovation within entries.
  • We can arrange for NDMA STEM Ambassadors to come into your school/college to discuss how current projects can be used and/or tailored for entry if required.
  • We adopt an all-inclusive approach to entries and welcome entries from all students participating in technology.

This is a great opportunity to showcase your talent to industry employers. Previous participants and winners have gone onto to secure work experience, opportunities for funded education and opportunities for long term employment and career development.

Please do not hesitate to contact Paul Mullen at  [email protected]  or Janet Phillips at  [email protected] for further information, clarification or help with arranging for themselves or appoint a further STEM Ambassador to come into your school to discuss further.

Previous years have seen entries as diverse as furniture projects, environmentally friendly innovations, multimedia devices and software projects. If it’s design or technology related, we want to see it!
