Schools STEM Competition

Win £200 in our Schools STEM Competition – Grow your Future with Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) and STEM.

Deadline 17th May 2017! Open to all Secondary School pupils (S1 to S6)

SRUC is a unique institution offering courses at all levels from access through college and university level study, to postgraduate taught courses and research opportunities. Our courses relate to the ways in which we make use of the land and the natural resources around us – from agriculture to the bio-economy, veterinary nursing, and a huge variety of exciting and relevant topics in between.

SRUC courses are underpinned by the innovative science that supports these land-based industries, and the way they interact and support the environment around them and the businesses that rely on them. The career opportunities within this sector are certainly something out of the ordinary. If you care about the environment, animal welfare, conservation or you simply don’t want a job where you will be stuck in an office 9 to 5 then SRUC can help you find a course and career path in a subject you can be passionate about.

This exciting competition gives you the opportunity to win £200 in vouchers for yourself and £100 for your school and 2 runners up prizes of £100 vouchers for your school, whilst also helping you think about where your favourite STEM related subjects could lead you.

There is no word limit – just create a job advert which includes a short description of the kind of tasks you would expect the successful candidate to be involved in on a daily basis and include subjects that the applicants should have studied at school (these should be either Biology, Chemistry, Physics or Geography).

You can include artwork if you like either digitally or hand drawn, if you think this would help attract the best candidate for the job! Submit your entry digitally by e-mail to by the 17th of May to be in with a chance of winning.

An independent panel will judge the entries and the winners will be announced by June 16th by e-mail.
