Shell believes the answers to tomorrow’s energy challenges lie in young people’s ingenuity.

The Bright Ideas Challenge Singapore asks secondary students to imagine creative ideas of how cities of the future might be powered. It is designed to spark young people’s curiosity in science and engineering and help deliver the school’s curriculum in a fun and engaging way.

The national competition is a Shell initiative organised by the Science Centre Singapore and supported by the Ministry of Education. Shell is committed to inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers. The competition shows students how STEM can tackle real world problems and make a positive difference in the world.

Winners of The Bright Ideas Challenge Singapore can receive up to S$5,000 prize packages of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) prizes. They may also get the opportunity to visit Make The Future Festival at London.
