The competition aims to educate, encourage and inspire. Students will have the opportunity to present STEM projects that they have been working on in this academic year. All STEM projects are very welcome, including coursework, hobby projects, and those completed as part of STEM schemes.

On the day, students are visited by engineering professionals, who will discuss the projects with the students and provide maximum opportunity for each student or team to explain their work. The projects are assessed on technical merit. Through this interaction with engineering role models the students benefit from:

  • Further understanding of how their work relates to the engineering industry.
  • Professional feedback on their work and good interview practice.
  • Insight into career and business opportunities.

Representatives from CSES and our partner organisations will be present to answer questions about STEM careers and education options.

Students and teams who are scored highly by our judges will be invited to our prestigious awards ceremony to receive their prize.
