Get involved with the Youth Industrial Strategy Competition

The Youth Industrial Strategy Competition is a new national STEM initiative that aims to inspire and challenge young people aged 11 to 19.

Focused around the four Grand Challenges of the UK Government’s Industrial Strategy, the competition calls on students to come up with innovative solutions that have the potential to change our future industries, society and the environment.

Students can work on their own or as part of a team to create their own science or technology project based on the Grand Challenges.

All Youth Industrial Strategy Competition entries should be student-led, with a clear Grand Challenge themed idea at its core, including elements of teamwork, communication and reflective practice.

Entries which meet the Youth Industrial Strategy Competition criteria will also be eligible for a CREST Award, the British Science Association's award scheme for STEM project work that inspires young people to think and behave like scientists and engineers.

Entries for the competition need to be submitted by November 2019.
