The deadline for registration is noon on Friday, June 14.

With a cash prize of £500 for the overall winners, the competition is open to primary and secondary schools across Kent and the south-east – offering them a great opportunity to showcase work previously prepared for exams or other competitions.

Shortlisted teams will present their work to a panel of judges at a Dragons’ Den-style awards ceremony taking place at the Sandwich premises of Bright Spark judging organisation Discovery Park in July.

Entries registered so far include:

A creative project making sculptures out of recycled metal;

An analysis of radioactivity levels in common foods and drinks;

Development of a prototype for the early detection of forest fires;

A study of the use of the process of fluidisation to clean out vehicle fuel tanks;

And a green-energy project integrating solar and kinetic energy.

Besides Discovery Park, the other judges are BAE Systems, Atkins Global, Megger, the ITL Group, EduKit, Highways England, Pfizer, Kent Renewable Energy and Golding Vision.
