TEXPO 2023 – enter now
CSES Schools' TEXPO: Fri 30 June 2023, ARU Chelmsford
For Y5-13 | Show your project to scientists and engineers | Cash prizes | Free lunch!
Are you in a STEM club at primary or secondary school? Have you made or investigated something fantastic in technology or science lessons? Have you been doing interesting technical projects at home?
Are you a teacher who'd like to showcase your pupils' / students' work? Or are you a parent, guardian or tutor whose child has been working on an exciting project?
If your answer to any of these questions is YES, then exhibit at the annual CSES TEXPO. There is prize money to be won and we even provide lunch!
We welcome projects from all STE(A)M disciplines. You don't need to do any additional work: bring your project(s) as they are. This could be something you've made, software, experiments, reports, posters, videos, presentations etc.
Your project does not need to be unique to TEXPO – in fact we would encourage reuse! We welcome coursework and projects originally from other competitions and schemes.
More than prizes to be won
TEXPO doesn't just mean you could win prizes (although that is of course a big plus); you will gain a lot more from it than that.
This is an excellent opportunity to develop your interview and presentation skills, as you explain your project to our judges, many of whom are from local industry. You won't just get professional feedback and tips from real engineers and scientists, you'll also get to talk about careers – this is great exposure and looks good on your CV or university application!
You will get the chance to meet VIPs such as our MP and council leaders, and show your work to them. And you'll see and vote for other students' projects from schools across Essex.
