Registration for the Schools Science Competition 2016/17 has now closed. The deadline for registration was Monday 05 December 2016.

Once registered, teams must create a 5 minute film that: briefly outlines the problem they have identified; describes their innovative solution; explains the science behind their idea; and clearly illustrates how their idea would address the problem. Guidance on making and editing a film can be found here: Film Making and Editing Guide.

The film must be accompanied by the Schools Submission Form, a link to which will be emailed to all registered team mentors. The form includes the information provided as part of the registration process, plus a brief summary of the team's idea. Submissions must be made by Friday 27 January 2017.
