After an incredibly successful first year, The Bright Ideas Challenge will launch for a second year in October 2016. The Challenge is designed to spark young people’s curiosity in science, engineering and the world around them. It supports cross-curricular learning and encompasses a series of activities that can be completed in 2.5-5 hours.
As well as helping you link classroom content to the world around us, your students could win one of 11 regional cash prizes to super-size science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) teaching at their school. One school will be named national champion and take home a total of £5,000!
Plan ahead to get involved before the Challenge closes at Easter 2017.
To support your teams, we’ll provide:
- A student workbook
- Videos to guide your students and spark ideas
- Curriculum-linked teaching notes and PowerPoint slides
The Bright Ideas Challenge is perfect for:
- A class challenge
- A dropped timetable day
- A Science Week project
- Science and Technology Club activities
