Bosch Bosch! Bosch promotes kids’ interest in science, engineering

A PROJECT sponsored by the Royal Academy of  Engineering and sponsored by Bosch really captures our interest, a lot.

The Bosch Technology Horizons Award is an essay writing competition aimed at young people aged between 14 and 24. It’s in its fifth year.

The idea is that a short essay encourages the kids to explore engineering and technology topics – the subject this year being “Is engineering and technology essential for future development?”

The competition has two age categories – 14 to 18 and 19 to 24 years old. First prize for the younger group is £700 and second place $350.

The older group attracts a first prize of £1,000 and a second prize of £500 – there are five runner up prizes in both categories.

The deadline is the 22nd March 2010.

CEO of the Royal Academy of Engineering Phillip Greenish said: “Advances in engineering have formed the cornerstone of civilisation and responsible development in the future will rely heavily on engineers and technologists.”

Enthusiastic youngsters should go here to discover more.
