We are delighted to announce the 2020 BIEA competition theme “SOS – STEM (Stop) The Tide of Plastic Pollution.”

As plastic pollution in the oceans and along shorelines is one of the most pressing environmental problems that the world is currently facing, the 2020 BIEA competition will ask teams of school students to come up with innovative solutions.

Work in teams and develop your skills in this brand-new challenge which will get you thinking, researching and creating an engineering solution that can be applied to a real-world problem!

Pre-registration is open now and details of the first round (report writing) will be announced in January 2020. Teams who qualify for the finals will be invited to the UK Finals Event to be held in July 2020.

Register here and be kept updated about the 2020 competition.
