Ultimate STEM Challenge: Wearable Tech 2019/20

Reimagine a solution to a real-life problem

Open for entries now!

The Ultimate STEM Challenge is back again and bigger than ever before! Now open to pupils aged 9-14, this national competition invites young people to get creative and design a new piece of wearable tech that will improve lives in the future.

Wearable tech is all around us - from smartwatches to robotic prosthetics, the possibilities are endless and now we are looking for the next big thing!

There are some brilliant prizes up for grabs including, an all-expenses paid Hackathon day at BP’s Upstream Learning Centre, where students will discover more about the world of wearable tech and work with scientists, coders and designers to bring their own ideas to life! Plus, two lucky schools will also each win £750 to spend on STEM learning equipment or field trips.

It’s easy to take part, simply,

1.    Download your ready-to-go packs including two lesson plans, homework activity and competition entry forms.

2.    Get your pupils to capture their wearable tech idea on the challenge entry form.

3.    Send us your pupils’ entries before the closing date of 14 January 2020.
