The ALL About STEM Competiton – closing date extended!

The closing date for The All About STEM Competition has been extended to Friday the 31st of May at 5 pm.

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.’

This year, learners are challenged 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, design an eating aid or even a school canteen of the future. The options are endless.

Michelle Dow, managing director at 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 realworld problems.

“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.”

Nathan Walker, global hair and R&D manager at Unilever, said: “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.”

The All About STEM Competition is open to learners aged 9-16 across the North West. Entries from teams or individuals are welcome whether entrants are at school, home or part of a community group. The competition website hosts a wealth of resources and ideas and school support is available.
