About the Competition

The Schools Science Competition, which is run by the Faculty of Natural Sciences at Imperial College, is open to teams of pupils from secondary schools in Greater London.

We are pleased to announce the launch of the competition for 2016/17. Teams can register here!

The purpose of the competition is to motivate school pupils to engage with science, to encourage them to work together as part of a team and to engage them in a fun activity that is motivated by their curiosity and drive.

The competition first ran in 2014/15, with the aim being for teams to put together a case for “The most significant scientific discovery or achievement of the last century”.

The aim of the competition for 2015/16 was for teams to identify an everyday problem that directly impacts society. They were then asked to come up with a new and innovative scientific solution to tackle this problem and present this in the form of a short film.
