This year, we particularly want to encourage pupils to approach their competition entries with sustainability and a brighter future in mind.
The BP Ultimate Stem Challenge is intended to get young children involved in STEM subject with an annual competition that leads up to an awards show and science fair in the Science Museum in London. The competition should challenge and test children’s ability to carry out scientific testing, show their research and data handling, and think creatively to offer a solution to today’s problems.
