Inside Supporting STEM

The Bright Ideas Challenge

What will cities look like in 2050? How will they be powered to be vibrant, healthy and clean places to live? That’s the question put to students aged 11-14 by The Bright Ideas Challenge, Shell’s cross-curricular schools’ competition. Now in its sixth year, the competition invites young people to use their creativity, problem solving and STEM skills to devise innovative solutions that could power cities of the future. They could win up to £10,000 for their school, high-tech goodie bags and action-packed educational experiences, so there’s every reason to think big!
