Now in its ninth year, the annual KMF Young Engineer of the Year Competition brings together year 10 high school teams with sponsors from industry and higher education. Since the YEOTY launch in 2012, 25,500 pupils and over 60 companies have taken part, with £1m invested to date.
Our mission is to challenge curious minds, inspire innovation, raise aspirations, encourage teamwork, and ignite interest in engineering careers.
This year our “Classtronauts” will compete using cutting-edge high altitude balloon technology to design, engineer and launch their creation into space, track its journey and visually record the whole process, by presenting a video of the whole project and its flight.
