Longitude Explorer Prize 2019

We’re thrilled to announce that Longitude Explorer Prize will be returning for the academic year 2019/20! This will be the third time we’ve run this prize, and with the support of the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy we’re excited to reach as many young people across the UK as possible.

Longitude Explorer Prize first launched in 2014, and uses STEM, entrepreneurship and innovation to help young people tackle the issues they care about. We’ll be inviting 11-16 year olds to form teams of 2-5 people to submit their ideas for solutions, focused around using Artificial Intelligence to improve the lives of others.

Longitude Explorer will run across the academic year, with events and support for teams to develop their ideas and turn them into reality. Read about the winners from the 2015 and 2017 programmes to learn more about the prize and get inspired by their amazing solutions!

The Prize will be going live at the end of September, but until then you can register your interest in the Prize here and keep up to date with all the latest news and developments.
