Schools' Analyst Competition 2024

15 April - 14 June 2024, United Kingdom

The Schools' Analyst Competition is back for 2024. Registration is open now for a chance to receive one of 400 kits to be sent to schools in the UK and Ireland.*

The Challenge
The competition kits will allow teams of three students to compete against each other in a series of analytical challenges supporting the Trading Standards Office. These flexible challenges will offer students the chance to apply their chemistry knowledge in a fun and rewarding way, with individual sessions able to be scheduled to fit around your timetable.

The Teams
The competition is for students aged approx. 16-17 years old equivalent to Year 12 in England and Wales, Y13 in Northern Ireland, S5 in Scotland, or 5th Year in Republic of Ireland. Teams of up to three students must work together to solve the challenges, answer tough questions, and submit their answers to the online portal.

The Numbers
Schools may ask for kits suitable for up to 25 teams to participate (up to 75 students in total).

The Reward
The winning team from each school will receive a certificate to recognise their achievement, but will also be entered into a second round against the other winning teams in your region for the chance to be crowned champions! Regional winners will also receive a prize to acknowledge their achievement.

Important Information
Registration closes on Friday 23rd February 2024.
By Friday 1st March, 400 entries will be selected at random to receive a box (this does mean not all entries are guaranteed to receive a box).
Boxes will be delivered to successful entrants during the week of 15th April.

Results must be submitted by:
Republic of Ireland: Friday 17th May 2024.
UK: Friday 14th June 2024.
(The different submission dates are to ensure Republic of Ireland schools have the chance to award winners before breaking up for the summer.)
