The Big Bang Competition Eligibility

The Big Bang programme aims to encourage and inspire young people from groups who are under-represented in the engineering profession.  

The Big Bang Competition is open to young people aged 11 to 18 in state funded education or who are home educated or who enter as part of a community group. Young people who attend independent or private schools, colleges or sixth forms are not eligible to enter The Big Bang Competition 2023, or showcase projects in the Big Bang Project Gallery.

However, to further support state schools we can receive joint entries from teams comprising an equal number of independent school/partner state school students, with the entry coming via the state school, as we look to further support young people with additional opportunities and access to resources from the independent school community. 

We don’t want your STEM journey to end here - you can find other fantastic STEM engagement activities to take part in below:
