Submit your application by July 14, 2023 at 5pm BST. In the application, you will be asked to provide some information about yourself and your project, including being asked to answer 4 short questions, which will be used to determine whether you are selected for this opportunity.
The 4 questions you will be asked are:
- Project Abstract/Summary: Tell them a bit about your project. If you already have an Abstract as part of your project report, you can use this, and if not, just tell them a bit about your project’s aims, what you did, and why your project is important. Answers should be a maximum of 250 words.
- What is your project about? Tell them in a 60 second video!: Here, you’ll be asked to provide a link to a 60 second video (uploaded to YouTube (unlisted is fine!), Vimeo, WeTransfer, or similar) of you telling them about your project. Don’t worry about the film quality or fancy equipment – recording yourself on a mobile phone is fine. Here, your communication and enthusiasm for your research are much more important! Top tip: Don’t go over the 60 second time limit!
- Why You?: Why do you want to be part of the Youth STEM Matters Research Conference? Answers should be a maximum of 500 characters.
- Why Your Project?: Why would your project be a good fit for the Youth STEM Matters Research Conference? Answers should be a maximum of 500 characters. Top tip: Here you could consider its aims, significance, and its relevance to youth and/or the SDGs.
