Enter The All About STEM Competition!
Open for entries: The All About STEM Competition! (Ages 9-16)
The All About STEM Competition, sponsored by Unilever aims to open up the world of STEM to young people across the North West by inviting them to ‘develop a new product, item, idea or approach which solves a problem facing our world or the people in it.’
And this year it’s all about FOOD!
We’re challenging learners to come up with solutions to food problems. This could be a new way to grow food, an innovative way to transport it to homes or those in need, they could design an eating aid or even a school canteen of the future …the options are endless!
Michelle Dow, Managing Director, All About STEM said, “The All About STEM Competition is the perfect way to celebrate and acknowledge our amazing young people’s abilities and showcase their innovative solutions to real-world problems. The entries we received in 2023 were phenomenal and it was brilliant to see learners take a spark of inspiration and develop that into a concept that can make a real difference.
It is a pleasure to partner with Unilever again to offer this competition across our region. They have supported our work for many years and have helped us reach thousands of young people.
The Unilever team at Port Sunlight share and prioritise our core values and collaborate with us to engage our schools in enriching and interactive STEM activities, giving us the opportunity to make a massive difference to our young people’s aspirations locally. Both of our teams can’t wait to see all the problem-solving projects for 2024!”
“Unilever’s passion to support STEM learning has grown each year, and The All About STEM Competition is a great fit alongside our Bright Future Programme. Our aim is to inspire all young people about STEM and STEM careers, igniting their enthusiasm through showcasing the science behind the everyday. We are really pleased to partner with All About STEM again on this inclusive competition, and look forward to being inspired by entries from students across the North West” – Nathan Walker, Global Hair R&D Manager, Unilever
