The National Science and Engineering Competition aims to recognise and reward young people’s achievements in all areas of science, technology, engineering and maths. It is open to 11-18 year olds and provides young people with the opportunity to build their skills and confidence in project-based work.
There are heats held at selected Big Bang Near Me Fairs across the UK from January to 31 October each year.
Projects are invited to enter through their local heat. All competitor projects are showcased to the public and entering through a Near Me Fair is a fantastic way of building communication skills.
The best projects are then invited to go to the National Finals in March.
