Challenge for Change

  • Challenge for Change

Have your say in a new scheme to fund educational ideas from young minds

While the nation is all in a voting mood, the finalists of Microsoft’s YouthSpark Challenge for Change also want your vote – and the process is now officially open. The global Challenge for Change initiative encourages young people to make a change for good in their community, or anywhere around the world and are awarded a grant of $2,500 to make it happen. 

Primary teachers may be particularly interested in 17-year-old Lawrence Berry’s science kits for primary schools initiative. Lawrence is passionate about encouraging more young people to experiment with science, and if he wins, he hopes that he will be able to inspire more young people to take their science education further, and plug the growing STEM skills gap in the UK.
