After a year of inundating you with the latest science, we want to hear from you! Specifically, our younger cohort. If you are aged 18 or younger, this one’s for you. Here at A Short Scientist, we want to inspire younger generations to find a love for science again, therefore over the month of February we’re running a science writing competition!
We know some teachers use the blog as starting material for some science lessons, so why not challenge your pupils further? We are looking for pupils to write a short blog style article about their favourite science topic. It should be no longer than 700 words and try to explain their chosen topic in a fun way to the readers. If you want to include images please do, although we will illustrate the winning articles if they are not illustrated, so don’t worry. Make sure you include references if you have referred to anyone else’s work! Some article examples could be:
- “The Perils of Plastic Pollution”
- “Why can we Walk on Custard?”
- “Our Amazing Solar System”
The following are the age categories: 10-12, 13-15, and 16-18 years old. The winner of each category will have their article published on the AShortScientist blog, receive a certificate, and some science goodies from awesome science shops, “Science on a Postcard” and “Two Photon Art”.
The closing date is Sunday 3rd March at 6pm (GMT). Anyone wishing to enter should send their completed entries (in PDF or Word format, or a photo if you want to write it by hand), along with their name, age and home country to email@example.com. We can’t wait to read them, HAPPY WRITING!
PS don’t hesitate to contact us on social media or via email with any queries.
