Ultimate STEM Challenge
BP has launched the Ultimate STEM Challenge for a fifth year in partnership with STEM Learning.
Students aged 11 to 14 are being asked to look at the world around them and use their STEM skills and knowledge to design a better solution.
By exploring the practical uses of science, engineering and technology the challenge is designed to stimulate creativity, build confidence and teamworking skills, and inspire young people to consider careers in STEM. You can also request a STEM Ambassador to support your STEM Club or class.
This year's challenge
STEM Ambassadors can inspire and support your students as they work on their projects.
- If you already have a STEM learning account, follow our guidance document for how to request support.
- If you don't already have a STEM learning account, please contact your local STEM Ambassador hub.
The Ultimate STEM Challenge is very flexible and entering is easy – the challenge can be completed over a shorter or longer period of time. Students create a PowerPoint or YouTube video showcasing their work.
Meet the finalists and winners of the BP Ultimate STEM Challenge 2017/18.
The judges are looking for projects that can show:
- Is it STEM?
- Is there a prototype?
- Does it help?
- Does it work?
- Is it clear?
- Does it stand out?
