How to Enter

Taking part is really easy! All you need to do is come up with a question, think of a way of investigating it, record what you’ve done and tell us all about it! See here for how to get started and how we can support you.

Share your investigation with us

When you’ve finished your investigation, fill in the online form below. You can use any format to tell us about what you’ve done and what you’ve found out – it could be a short video (maximum 2 minutes, please!); a poster; a photo diary; or a written report. You can upload a Word document, PDF, image or video link via our website.

Key dates

Please submit your investigation by 13th July. Our friendly judging panel will evaluate the entries and the results will be announced on 20th July. We will contact winners directly to tell them the good news!


We have a range of fantastic prizes, including £500 of Playforce playground equipment that you could win for your school, 25 subscriptions to The Curiosity Box to give away as well as family tickets to the Science Oxford Centre when we reopen. We will also hope to invite all participants to a grand celebration event later this year at the Science Oxford Centre.
