Schools' Competition

images/static_images/competition_banner.png

Are you in a STEM club at primary or secondary school? Have you made something fantastic in technology or science lessons or for your coursework? Have you created some great software? Have you been doing interesting technical projects at home?

Are you a teacher with pupils or students who have high-quality engineering projects to offer, or a STEM initiative/club that you'd like to showcase? Or are you a parent, guardian or tutor whose child has been working on an exciting project?

If your answer to any of these questions is YES, then exhibit at the CSES Schools' Competition. It is at the end of each academic year, and there is prize money to be won!

The CSES Schools' Competition 2014 is launched!
