The Great Exhibition at Home 2020

In the spirit of Prince Albert’s original Great Exhibition, which showcased the most exciting Victorian technology and inventions from 1851, students across the country took part in engineering challenges and created their own Great Exhibitions at home!

For the 2020 challenge, participants submitted a 1 minute video presenting their Great Exhibition at Home, which tackled the question:

How can engineering help protect the planet?

Video entries from students across Year 4 – Year 12 were full of innovative ideas, exceptional experiments and intriguing inventions. It was a very difficult decision for the judges, however, after much deliberation 7 entries were selected to receive top prizes for their school.

These prizes included money to supersize STEM subjects in school, a meeting with one of the engineers featured in the pack, some of whom support the This is Engineering campaign to promote engineering careers, alongside 30 special commendation prizes for individual entries.
