The five finalists will be invited to showcase their work at the Big Bang Fair 2015, the largest celebration of engineering and science for young people in the UK. The fair is attended every year by thousands of visitors. All finalists may be accompanied by a guest at the event.
The winning idea will be announced at the Big Bang Fair 2015 following the decision of the judging panel.
The competition winner will receive:
- A cash prize worth £1,000
- A tour of the Houses of Parliament accompanied with the Minister of State for Transport, Baroness Susan Kramer
- The chance to see their idea turned into a prototype by a small or medium size enterprise (SME)
Runners up will receive a certificate in recognition of their achievement and be given the opportunity to spend a day at Transport Systems Catapult’s Imovation Centre in Milton Keynes.
The Transport Systems Catapult will look to introduce small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) to develop the winning idea into a prototype.
This development stage will give the winning student(s) the opportunity to meet with the SME who will take their idea forward into an early development stage product. Further details will be announced at the Big Bang Fair 2015.
Competition deadline: February 13 2015
