The Big Bang Competition is open for entries! It inspires students to work together, problem solve and get creative with science, engineering and technology. New for this year, celebrate students’ inner innovator with brand-new technology prizes, supported by Siemens.

Entries will close on 27 March at 5pm so there is plenty of time to start a project!
