The Science Challenge is Back!

The Science Challenge is back for another year of giving young scientists the opportunity to show off their science communication skills and we’re now counting down to the launch of this year’s competition next month!

The Science Challenge is the Imperial Royal College of Science Union’s annual science communication competition. It gives young scientists the opportunity to develop the skills to talk about science in a way that is engaging and fun to people who don’t necessarily have a science background. 

The competition involves producing a short piece of science communication, in either written or video format in answer to one of four questions set by our guest judges. In previous years we’ve had themes covering topics as wide as the connection between art and science to climate change and this year will have the broadest set of questions yet!

The details for the launch will be released shortly so keep an eye out for an email from our Science Challenge chair. For more information, please visit  or send us an email to
