Over 200 projects from schools across the UK have made it through to the National Science + Engineering Competition Finals, held at The Big Bang Fair from 14 – 17 March 2013.
Thousands of projects from across the UK entered either through the regional heats (held at 12 venues across the UK in June/July) or the online heats (July to October) with the best young scientists and engineers being invited to the prestigious Finals. Young people aged 11-18 entered their science, technology, engineering or maths projects, with projects ranging from a golf swing training aid to investigating the breeding success of Chilean Flamingos!
The full list of projects and competitors can be viewed here.
Jon Fitzmaurice, National Science + Engineering Project Manager, said, ‘We would like to congratulate all the projects that have made it through to the National Finals. It is a great achievement and we have had thousands of outstanding entries that represent the very best of science and engineering in the UK.
This year’s Nationals Finals at The Big Bang Fair promise to be the best yet and we are really looking forward to seeing all the projects in March. With over 65,000 people expected at the Fair, we are sure they will be inspired by our Finalists work and we hope that it will inspire more young people to undertake a project and enter the Competition’.
Finalists will compete for over 30 prizes and experiences worth over £50,000 including the prestigious titles of UK Young Engineer(s) and Young Scientist(s) of the Year. To find out more about last year's National Finals please see the film below.
