The Youth STEMM Award is a skills award for young people aged 13-19 years, to support and inspire the next generation of STEMM professionals.

Young people on their Youth STEMM Awards journey

Young people can register to take part through their school or college or as independent participants. Once registered, an Award is achieved by undertaking hours of extracurricular STEMM-related activities which are logged on a personalised e-portfolio. 

Students can work towards a Bronze, Silver or Gold level Award, by inspiring the next generation, engaging the public, developing skills and shaping their future career in the STEMM sector. The e-portfolio also allows schools to capture engagement across their cohort and identify areas that need further development. 

Every event in the Norwich Science Festival can count towards an award. Students should take a note of the length of the events they attend and log them onto their e-portfolio with a brief description of the activity and a reflection of the skill or knowledge learned.
