What is the Young Engineering Of The Year Competition?

KMF’s YEOTY is a local competition that has so far reached more than 25,000 students, worked with over 60 sponsor organisations and invested over £1M in encouraging students into STEM subjects with the hope of inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers. The competition also leaves a legacy product with their schools for them to continue working on.

YEOTY22 Space Olympics saw 228 Year 10 pupils from 19 Stoke-On-Trent schools take on the opportunity to challenge themselves with a project that involved designing, building and launching their capsule of Space Olympics science experiments into near-space using a giant balloon.
