The competition is open to students aged 5-18 with entries accepted in any format as long as they accurately communicate science.
Recent entries have included videos, podcasts, posters, even cartoons, songs and poems.
The 2014 competition theme is art and science. We would like students to answer the question "Where is the art in science? Where is the science in art?". Your creative responses can answer one or both of these questions.
Entries may be submitted online from January 2014, please check back for a link to the submission site.
The 2014 competition will close on Monday 31st March 2014.
