✔ For students in years 7-11
✔ For students in years 12-13

The sponsor for Best Innovation is Sopra Steria.

Have you come up with a brilliant idea using science, technology or engineering to make life better, simpler, easier or more fun? Have you clearly identified a problem, researched the existing market and developed and designed an imaginative solution?

Your idea may be at concept stage or you may have built an app, a model, a game, an animation or a working prototype.

This is a very open category. You could come up with a new idea for this project, or develop an existing piece of your school coursework.
