Professor Brian Cox calls for young scientists and engineers

Professor Brian Cox has continually backed the development of young scientists and engineers in the UK but this year he’s stepped up big time to encourage youngsters aged 11-16 to enter their projects in The National Science + Engineering Competition… and we’re so glad he has because MerseySTEM are regional hosts!

The North West heat for the NSEC will take place at The Big Bang North West and we’re looking for student who would like to enter their projects. You will get to showcase your fantastic work to industry and academic experts and be in with a chance of winning amazing prizes, some are even international experiences and the prize pot in total for all challenges tops £50,000.

Professor Cox is a huge fan! “Lots of people think you have to be some kind of genius like Einstein to undertake a science or engineering project, but that’s simply not true. There are lots of reasons to get involved. In the UK, the science industry drives our economy and yet we don’t have enough scientists or engineers to fill all available vacancies.”

“School project work is a fantastic way of giving young people experience of what scientists and engineers do on a daily basis and can open the door to a rewarding career in science and engineering.”

“I would encourage students and teachers to create a project and see where it takes them. It could take your students to the Finals of the National Science + Engineering Competition or even a career in science and engineering!”
