Calling all school age students in Portsmouth…

This Summer STEM Design Competition is an opportunity for you to develop your STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) skills, in addition, an opportunity for you to apply your Engineering Habits of Mind skills, so you could solve one of Portsmouth’s big problems.

Why do we need a #PompeyVerticalFarm?

St Margaret’s Church in Southsea run a fantastic food bank for the community and now they need your help with a sustainable design solution that will help them grow food for their food bank. Space is at a premium, and so a great solution is a vertical farm.

How it works

Every week, you will have weekly videos and resources from local experts to give you ideas of how to develop your design for the #PompeyVerticalFarm. This competition will run entirely online and you can develop your ideas from home.

Resources will be release via STEM Academy South Facebook/Instagram/Twitter and we available on the website so follow us and check in every Monday for updates from Monday 12th July 2021 at 3pm.

This entire competition is run remotely so all activities,  and designing are to be completed at home. You can submit your idea/design process in any format you like, this could be a presentation, a photograph of a model, a video, be creative!

The competition is open to all school age students in Portsmouth. The design can be submitted in any chosen format that you can email across to us at STEMAcademySouth@gmail.com

Entries must be sent over by Friday 10th September 2021 5pm. This will give you plenty of time to review and improve your design.

Prizes will be announced soon…
