Win more cool prizes!

We run regular competitions for schools and young people who share their love of science with us! 

Our competitions are designed to challenge students to explore science, technology, engineering and mathematical principles and explore simple experiments or presentations to demonstrate one of these.

You can win cool prizes such as ipads, cash or science kits.  All entries get an Institute of Refrigeration Certificate of Merit to recognise their work and highlight the skills and Gatsby Benchmarks that were involved.

Sign up for updates at by Registering for our competition new here! And follow us on twitter @FridgeFantastic #fantasticfridges #coolforschool to be the first to know about our next competition.

Top tips for your entry
  1. Planning is important! Be clear about what science topic you want to cover,  why you selected it and how you are going to present it before you start.
  2. Think it through carefully so that your experiment is safe for you to carry out - we recommend you get an adult to check your ideas.
  3. Get all your equipment ready - you can use a smart phone or a recorded computer presentation - no special cameras are needed
  4. Make sure your presentation or video will be no more than 2 minutes in length.
  5. Get everything ready and practice your experiment before you start recording it.  
  6. Watch your playback and re-record if necessary - so you are sure viewers can hear the voice-over and that the explanations are clear.
