For your chance to win £1000, “How can engineers solve the challenges of the 21st Century?”
Ages: There are 3 age brackets for this competition: 11-14, 15-16 and 17-18.
Group Size: Up to maximum of 6 per group. Groups can register independently or through their school. There is no limit to the number of groups from a school.

The brief is to pick a challenge, brainstorm and research and then decide what can be done about it – explain what engineers are or could be doing about this problem. Review what you find out, evaluate and present a conclusion. All of this can be done in video, report or poster form.
Some ideas for projects from the Talent 2030 site include:
- How engineers can ensure that there is enough water and food for a growing population?
- How could a hospital be designed best to help cancer patients?
- Could 3-D printing techniques improve an already existing product in a way that saves energy?
- How can robots make life or processes easier?
There are pages of resources on the Talent 2030 site. And of course, you can always come up with your own ideas!
