National Science + Engineering Competition Challenges

Rate this resource

This Challenge Pack, from the British Science Association, aims to give students aged 11-16 and their teachers and educators support to create a science, technology, engineering or maths (STEM) project that they can enter into the National Science + Engineering Competition.

Through creating a project, young people can explore the real nature of STEM and work on specific topics just like professional scientists and engineers. The Challenge Pack aims to help young people embark on a project, giving them ideas to get started and to take their project forward. The pack has been developed with leading STEM educationalists and is supported by a range of high profile scientists and engineers.

The Challenge Pack is aimed at students aged 11-16 (Key Stages Three and Four in England and Wales) and provides suggestions for teaching materials for this audience. The pack may also be used as a basis for work with younger or older students.
