About the Competition

The Schools Science Competition, which is run by the Faculty of Natural Sciences at Imperial College, is open to teams of pupils of secondary school age. 

The purpose of the competition is to motivate school pupils to engage with science, to encourage them to work together as part of a team and to engage them in a fun activity that is motivated by their curiosity and drive.

The competition first ran in 2014/15, with the aim being for teams to put together a case for “The most significant scientific discovery or achievement of the last century”.

In 2015/16 and 2016/17 the aim was for teams to identify an everyday problem that directly impacts society. They were then asked to come up with a scientific solution to tackle this problem and present this in the form of a short film.

In 2018, the competition aims were aligned to the UN Global Goals for Sustainable DevelopmentTeams were asked to select a specific goal and to come up with a new and innovative scientific solution in response to this.
