The Young Scientist Film Awards was delivered in partnership with National Physical Laboratory (NPL). For this competition, students were asked to make a film celebrating the diversity and excitement of science.   

Well done and thank you to all schools and students who took part in the 2019 Young Scientist Film Awards. We received 82 films from 33 schools.
