Enter The Longitude Explorer Prize: You could win £10,000!

IBM and Nesta have joined together to run the Longitude Explorer Prize, a youth-focused challenge for secondary school pupils aged 11-16, which aims to provide a practical education opportunity focused on developing science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) skills through the mechanism of a challenge prize.

The prize is seeking innovative and practical solutions that use web-enabled technology to help improve health and wellbeing in the UK. Areas of particular interest include childhood obesity, physical activity, mental health and pollution, but ideas can relate to any other health issues.

Teams from secondary schools around the UK are eligible to submit their ideas until Friday 3 March 2017. Around 10 finalists will be shortlisted and supported by IBM to turn their idea into reality. Winners will be announced before the end of school summer term 2017, with a first place prize of £10,000 and two runner-up prizes of £1,000.
