Why career in science? Discuss with your students and win!

Xperimania competition


Xperimania V launches a competition for students and teachers on how studying STEM leads to great career opportunities. Play the video ‘Science: where can it take you' in the class and show your students the variety of interesting and rewarding jobs in STEM.

To take part in the competition, teachers should submit a lesson plan or a classroom activity, using the video ‘Science: where can it take you?’ The three selected winners receive Amazon vouchers worth of €100, 75 and 50 respectively; the winners will also win a trip to the inGenious Summer School Academy on 23-25 August 2013 in Barcelona.

Students can also submit a presentation (a slideshow, video, essay …) showing why (or why not) they would like to become scientists and what they would like to do. The Xperimania jury will select three winning students to receive €50 Amazon vouchers.

Detailed information and the submission form are available on the Xperimania website. The deadline to submit your entries is 29 June 2013.



The competition is linked to the Xperimania chat for schools on 29 May 2013 about science careers in chemical industry. Three experts from the field shared their experiences from working in industrial research and presented the job opportunities that chemistry offers. To get an inspiration for the competition, you can listen to the audio record of the chat or read the transcript.

The current competition (and chat) are already fourth in this year round of Xperimania. You can see the gallery of entries and the winners of the previous competition on the project’s website. The project itself started in 2007 with the aim of helping students in secondary school and their teachers to understand the wide range of chemistry applications in our day-to-day life. So far, there have been five Xperimania rounds with the activities spanning from hands-on experiments and workshops, to school competitions and online chats with industry experts. Xperimania is coordinated by European Schoolnet on behalf of European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic). Other partners include European Petrochemical Association (EPCA,)  and the Association of Petrochemicals Producers in Europe (Appe).
