In his role as STEM Ambassador, our R&D Manager Julian Bond is one of the semi-finals judges for the BP STEM Ultimate Challenge.
The Ultimate Challenge, by BP, the Science Museum and STEMNET is a competition in which students aged 11 to 14 put their Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) skills to the test to win a number of prizes. These include an invitation to a celebratory event at the Science museum in London, £500 for their school and Science Museum gadgets.
Students are tasked with solving one of three exciting real-world challenges, based around the theme of using STEM to explore, live or work in challenging environments. They can choose from keeping warm, keeping hydrated or keeping cool.
Julian recently took part in a Google Hangout with students from The Cotswold School to offer some tips on creating a winning submission to the challenge.
STEMNET creates opportunities to inspire young people in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). This enables young people to develop their creativity, problem-solving and employability skills, widens their choices and supports the UK’s future competitiveness.
STEM Ambassadors use their enthusiasm and commitment to encourage young people to enjoy STEM subjects.
