Secondary Education
Description: 

The STEM Olympiads (Olympiades de sciences de l'ingénieur) is the biggest STEM competition organised in France. During 6 months, students create technological innovations. They present their innovations to a jury, who judges the innovative aspects, the engineering approach to do it, the capacity to work in group, and the scientific developments of the research. The best projects receive a grant from different industrial partners, and are sometimes patented.

Reach: 

The goal is to make the promotion of STEM, and provide grants to the students who involve in it. Each year, 4.500 students participate to this contest.

Impact: 

Each year, more than 200 press articles are published. This contributes to promoting STEM beyond the students themselves (e.g. family members).

Budget and funding model: 

The action is supported by UPSTI and its partners.
