Some students exhibiting their work at last year's TEXPO

TEXPO 2024 now open for entries

CSES Schools' TEXPO: Fri 21 June 2024, ARU Chelmsford (9am for 10am start, latest 3pm finish)

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 areas of science and technology. This could be something you've made, software, experiments, reports, posters, videos etc. Entrants to the competition are encouraged to submit projects that they have been working on already in class or at home, including those for coursework, meaning that no extra work is necessary. There is no need to have a 'finished product', and your project can be originally from another competition or scheme.

Show your work to our judges, who include professional scientists and engineers, and you'll be in with a chance of winning a prize!

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 work 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.

For staff and students

For the members of staff who accompany students, there is the opportunity to meet with colleagues from across the county, exchange ideas, and get an idea of what they are doing well.

There are significant cash prizes on offer for both the individual students and the school, presented at our prestigious awards evening (this year on Thursday 11 July) with dignitaries and parents in attendance.
