National Scientific Thinking Challenge

In 2021, a group of friends from Warwick, Southampton, Bristol, Newcastle, Manchester and Oxford Universities created a test for Year 10 students to try. They wanted to encourage students and give them something positive and enjoyable to try at a difficult time.

Last year they had 95 teachers from 69 schools and 4,397 pupils taking part! For 2023, the free challenge will take place in the last week of April. Any school from anywhere in the UK is welcome to enter and you can enter as many students as you wish from Year 10. For further details please visit National Scientific Thinking Challenge (
