International STEM Youth Innovation Competition

Design a drone to protect endangered animals and you could win £5,000

The British International Education Association (BIEA) is calling for schools across the UK to take part in its free annual International STEM Youth Innovation Competition. The competition challenges students under the age of 18 from all over the world, to design and develop a drone to help protect wild and endangered animals.

Supported by the British Science Association and the Royal Institution, the aim of the competition is to raise the level of technological enthusiasm among students as well as to stimulate their passion for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects.

Students can enter their designs until 31st March 2019. In April, 36 international finalists will be announced, and each team will receive £100 funding from BIEA to buy a mini drone and make their modifications to it. The winning team will then be announced at the RAF Museum in London on 4th July, where they will receive the £5,000 grand prize.  

This is a great opportunity to use the school library to research all aspects of design, from areodynamics to ethical implications.
