The Solar Car Challenge is designed to help motivate students in science, engineering, technology, and alternative energy. Top prize is a $100,000 scholarship. The coordination of e-machine, clutch and combustion engine during a tow start is challenging. Destination ImagiNation  For more information, please contact susan.loxley@leadersaward.com. Teams are made up of two to four students aged 11 to 14, and they can win some fantastic prizes, including an invitation to a celebration event at the Science Museum, an Ultimate STEM experience day, £500 for their school and Science Museum goodies. Through the competition, we are keen to help you get outside and celebrate working with nature. 3,500 students took part in the 2016 Intermediate Biology Olympiad on 22nd June 2016. Toys are a great way to learn about science, engineering, and the design process. The compeition is open to all UK residents in full-time education or training (year group 7-13 and Scottish/NI equivalent). DANA Foundation Neuroscience Project contest: http://www.dana.org/uploadedFiles/DABEC_guidelines.pdf. Suitable for ages 7-18.

Meet the GSK UK Young Engineers of the Year & the GSK UK Young Scientist of the Year 2020! Participants will have the opportunity to choose from three different objectives: Developing a new flowmeter; a new electronic management system; or any other original idea the participant has to bring a groundbreaking innovation to the fuel industry. The application deadline for the next program, which takes place on May 14 at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan, is April 14; learn more and apply at this link: http://perryinitiative.org/programs/student-online-application/, Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan is offering free biology-related summer courses to 9th, 10th, and 11th-graders, and also structured summer hospital internships to current high school juniors who are economically disadvantaged (free/reduced lunch) or from under-represented demographic groups (AfricanAmerican, Latino, Native American).
