STEM Clubs Week 2021: Competition
This year, STEM Learning is challenging young people to design a piece of wearable technology for use in an Olympic event!
People taking part in, or supporting, sport and exercise can face a range of physical, psychological and social limitations. This competition requires young people to consider how technology can help overcome these barriers, by designing a piece of wearable technology that could be used in an Olympic event.
The invention should be feasible – ie it should be something that could be made and would work using current or developing technology, engineering and science.
This competition is open to primary and secondary aged students. Entries should include a drawing/diagram of the invention, a written explanation of what the invention is, how it works, what event it will be used, who might use it, and how it will enhance performance (max 500 words).
Closing date: Midnight on Sunday 13 June 2021
- prize winners will be announced on YouTube on the final day of STEM Clubs Week – Friday 25 June
- there will be a first prize and runner up prize for primary and secondary students
- STEM Learning will endeavour to make a prototype of first prize entries, which will be displayed at the National STEM Learning Centre in York before being posted to the winners to keep!
