Do you know a student who could invent the future?
Brilliant ideas sometimes stem from an abstract, isolated thought but most often they come from trying to solve a specific problem. Innovation is firmly rooted in science, technology, engineering and maths which is why the Your Life campaign, which aims to drive uptake of Maths and Physics at A-Level, is running its Formula 100 competition again this year. Entering is easy, students just need to submit a 30-60 second video answering a simple question: What would you invent and why? There are two age categories: 11-13-year-olds 14-16-year-olds The winning entry in each category will win a £1000 for the school and an iPad for the student, plus more exciting prizes to be announced.
To find out more about the competition go to https://www.stem.org.uk/resources/collection/4218/your-life. Lesson plans and supporting materials are available to download.
