The Cambridge Upper Secondary Science Competition is closed for 2019 and will reopen later in the year for 2020 entries.
Cambridge International is pleased to introduce a competition for upper secondary learners (typically 14 to 16 years). We want to give learners the opportunity to develop their passion for science through practical work, investigating topics of interest and using the scientific method. We also want to promote the attributes of a Cambridge learner through collaboration and communication, promoting innovation and creativity.
The Cambridge Upper Secondary Science Competition is for teams of three to six learners working on a project outside normal curriculum time.
Teams choose a topic for their project and complete it over 20-25 hours. They will produce a portfolio of work and present it to their teacher and peers.
Teachers assess the projects using the mark scheme we provide.
Upon completion, teams will be awarded a Participation, Bronze, Silver or Gold certificate. Schools produce these certificates using the templates provided.
Teachers can submit the very best Gold portfolios for consideration by our expert panel of judges in Cambridge. The judges will select one winner for each region from the Gold submissions. Each regional winner will receive individual medals for each team member and a letter of recognition.
The top three regional teams will be invited to a video interview with our panel of judges so that they can select the overall global winner.
The winning team will receive Gold medals, a letter of commendation, a plaque of recognition for the school and may be featured in a future edition of Cambridge Outlook magazine.
Once you have entered your students for the competition, you can find all of the supporting documents you need to get started on the School Support Hub. This includes:
