The theme for this year's Royal Society of Chemistry's Bill Bryson prize for science communication is the science of travel.
The theme for this year's Royal Society of Chemistry's (RSC) Bill Bryson prize for science communication is the science of travel. Launched in 2006, the competition is open to students aged 5-18 and aims to encourage and identify clear science communication, in its widest form, in schools and colleges. (This year's prize shares its travel theme with the RSC's Chemistry Week, which will run from 3-11 November.)
The competition has two categories: primary school; and secondary school and FE college. Group or individual entries are eligible for both. Entries must focus on the science of travel and transport, eg how science is helping to develop more energy-saving means of travel and transport. Entries can be in any format, eg a contribution to a school magazine, a poster, a PowerPoint presentation etc. The best entries from each category will win £500 for their schools or colleges, plus the student contributors will share £100.
The closing date for entries is 31 May. Entry forms are available to download at www.rsc.org/billbrysonprize. For further information on the Bill Bryson prize contact Gemma Tobiasen at the Royal Society of Chemistry.
