The British International Education Association (BIEA) is staying true to their mission of facilitating equal and fair access to quality STEM education as the non-for-profit is set to host an online award ceremony to announce winners of the BIEA 2021 STEM Competition. The event is scheduled to hold virtually on Wednesday 22 September 2021 from 12:00 to 13:30 BST, as the world continues to battle the Covid-19 pandemic.
The UK and US government research indicate 80% of the future jobs will involve science and maths. It’s therefore ever more important and urgent for young people to build up their STEM skills. With the international STEM competition at the heart of the BIEA STEM programmes, BIEA has been working in partnership in local regions to develop initiatives that enthuse and engage youngsters in STEM learning, and secure their knowledge in critical STEM skills.
The 2021 competition theme incorporated UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, teams were challenged to investigate the plastic pollution crisis and develop sustainable food packaging for schools and workplaces. Prenominal entries from participants aged 9-21 across the globe were received, as teams demonstrated their enthusiasm to take climate action and make a positive impact in their communities.
The BIEA 2021 STEM Competition had finalists from 13 countries, including the UK, UAE, China, India, Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Indonesia, Malaysia, Bulgaria, Italy, Poland, and Azerbaijan, all delivering exceptional presentations to the judges.
The competition came to an unprecedented climax and winners will be announced and appreciated at the online award ceremony. A packed agenda will feature leading scientists from the UK and Europe, and BIEA youth STEM champions sharing their knowledge and vision on plastic pollution and climate change. Tickets to the event, scheduled for Wednesday 22 September 2021, can be booked on Eventbrite.
