Secondary schools in the South East called upon to register for STEM contest.
Ceres in partnership with STEM Learning UK, today launched the first ever Reimagine secondary school video competition looking to inspire students interested in tackling climate change using hydrogen technologies.
Students with an interest in science and creative projects from across the South East of England are invited to submit a three minute video explaining an exciting scientific idea to help tackle the net zero mission using hydrogen. The winning submission will be turned into a professional animation. The successful team will also be offered work experience opportunities and mentoring from Ceres’ most senior technical and business leaders. The competition is the first of its kind in its goal to attract not only future scientists but also artists looking to tell the story of climate change using exciting and creative imagery.
Ceres CEO, Phil Caldwell, said “I hope that this competition will inspire a new generation of climate change solvers. Achieving net zero is at the heart of what we do here at Ceres, and we are excited to see the creativity of school pupils both in terms of storytelling and scientific ingenuity, as we all work together to achieve that goal.”
Yvonne Baker, Chief Executive of STEM Learning added: “Initiatives like this Ceres Power competition – alongside their fantastic STEM Ambassadors – play a vital role in engaging young people in climate change issues and help them discover the many benefits of a rewarding career in STEM.”
MP for Horsham, Jeremy Quin, commented: “This is a fantastic initiative between Ceres Power and STEM Learning UK to help young people harness their creativity and talents to explain how new technologies, like hydrogen, can help solve climate change. I would strongly encourage secondary school pupils in West Sussex to participate and look forward to seeing the entries.”
