The National Science + Engineering Competition seeks the best of the best from every area of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

The Competition is open to 11-18 year olds in the UK and the best entries will be invited to showcase their project at The Big Bang: UK Young Scientists and Engineers Fair in March. Finalists have their own stands to show off all their hard work to scientists, engineers, students, parents, employers, teachers and celebrities. Plus a select few may even be chosen to present to a VIP panel in the Competition Finals!

There is over £50,000 of prizes up for grabs including cash awards and trips abroad. As well as lots of team and individual prizes, entrants in the senior category could be crowned the UK Young Scientist of the Year or the UK Young Engineer of the Year.

The National Science + Engineering Competition is an initiative of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, and is coordinated by the British Science Association in partnership with Young Engineers and The Big Bang Fair.
