The Big Bang Competition is now open for entries

It’s that time of year again! We are ready to excite you with another Big Bang Competition where you can showcase your creativity and superb STEM skills. You can enter your project from 6 December to 20 March.

If you have an idea to invent something to transform people’s lives or use scientific research to find solutions then why not enter the Competition? You could win the prestigious title of UK Young Scientist or UK Young Engineer of the Year and lots of other exciting prizes.

The winners of The Big Bang Competition will be announced at The Big Bang Fair, which will open its doors from Wednesday 22 to Friday 24 June 2022 at the NEC in Birmingham.

But there’s more to it than just winning prizes! From team work and getting creative, to analysing and communicating findings, The Big Bang Competition is a brilliant way to develop valuable skills for the future. It’s also a great chance to get feedback from real scientists and engineers and to celebrate and share the achievements of young people.

Previous winners of The Competition have gone on to enjoy a range of achievements on the back of their successes – including getting backing from businesses for their projects, setting up their own businesses, taking part in conference presentations to industry professionals as well as appearing on the television and radio shows to talk about their projects.

Projects can be about any topic in the field of STEM – it doesn’t matter if they’ve been done using simple everyday items or through research in a science laboratory, in school or at home – it’s all about the idea and the enthusiasm behind it!

Enter your science or engineering project online by Sunday 20 March!
