Young Scientists of the Year

Secondary Schools

We believe that hard work, commitment and achievement in science should be recognised. That’s why we run the Young Scientists of the Year celebration, which honours some of our most outstanding Year 13 science students.

Teachers can nominate up to three students based on a number of criteria:
• Enthusiasm and commitment to a subject
• Going above and beyond i.e. mentoring another student
• Being creative their approach
• Progress made during their A-Level course (or equivalent)
• Overall excellence

The 2022 events will take place in the autumn of 2022.

The 2021 Young Scientist of the Year took place virtually, with special guest speakers from STFC’s Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and Dr Sean Ellis from University of Oxford’s Jenner Institute, where they heard first hand about the development of AstraZeneca vaccine. We would like to thank all schools who nominated students, and our event sponsors.
