A DIY Imagine! STEM competition during lockdown

The exciting series of Imagine! masterclasses planned by Chelmsford Science and Engineering Society for Essex 2020 have had to be postponed but we are thrilled to announce that the courses will be published online.


You could win a prize

Build a model bridge – using only old cereal boxes, string, sticky tape and glue – which will support a 300g can of baked beans.

Make a video clip of your successes and/or failures. Send your clip to CSES Education education@chelmsfordses.org.uk before 25th September 2020 and you could win a prize. That’s all you have to do.

Download the CSES Imagine! Masterclass: Simple Machines and Bridges activity pack and get building!

If you share any of your creations on social media – don’t forget to tag #Essex2020.
