Are you looking to inject inspiration into your school’s STEM learning? Get your students involved in The Bright Ideas Challenge, Shell’s cross-curricular competition for students aged 11-14. Their bright ideas could win up to £5,000 to super-size STEM learning at your school.
Now in its third year, the free competition invites students to combine their creative problem solving and STEM skills to come up with bright ideas to power the cities of 2050, and make them vibrant, healthy and clean places to live, work and play.
“We thought outside of the box [and] worked well as a team, with some people more into the creative side while others were interested in the practical side of how we could upscale our idea.”
Words of wisdom from 2017’s national winners – the ‘Energeeks’ – an all-girls team of five Year 8 students from Dr Challoner’s High School in Little Chalfont.
Share this inspirational Energeeks video with your students, so they can get some insightful tips on how to formulate a winning idea:
Visit shell.co.uk/brightideaschallenge to register, and you’ll gain access to our curriculum-linked Teachers Toolkit and a whole host of free resources – such as videos, a Student Workbook and a classroom presentation, to help your students get the most from the competition.
The final deadline to submit your students’ entries is 5pm on April 27, 2018.
Your school will be in with the chance of winning cash prizes of £750 - £5,000, a funded VIP experience at Make the Future Live in London and a cutting-edge prototyping session for your students to really bring their idea to life*! What’s more, every team who enters will also receive feedback from our judges, so all students who participate get their hard work recognised.
