A DIY Imagine! STEM competition during lockdown
As the series of Imagine! masterclasses we had planned for Essex 2020 have had to be postponed, we are publishing the courses online.
You could win a prize
Build a model bridge – using only old cereal boxes, string, sticky tape and glue – which will support a 300g can of baked beans.
Make a video clip of your successes and/or failures. Send it to us before 1 July 2020 and you could win a prize. That's all you have to do.
Go to our ideas, links and resources section to find out more about "bridges, levers and tools" and how to enter.
Essex 2020: A Year of Science and Creativity
Chelmsford Science and Engineering Society (CSES) celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2020. To mark the occasion the Society, in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University, bid to host the British Science Festival. We were successful in bringing this international festival to Essex for the first time its 189-year history.
The occasion inspired Essex Partners to launch Essex 2020 – a Year of Science and Creativity to mark this prestigious event.
The British Science Festival has been postponed until next year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however we are pleased to advise that we will be holding many of our Essex 2020 (and regular) events online. The rest are being rescheduled to our next (2020-21) season.
Read on or see our events pages to find out what we've got planned.
Due to the COVID-19 situation we will unfortunately be unable to hold the CSES Schools' Competition this year.
If you were thinking of entering, we will gladly allow entries from this year to be presented next year. We'll announce the details once confirmed.
Thank you for your understanding, and the very best wishes for the coming months. Stay safe!
We know that CSES events matter to our members, and that it is especially important to keep our community alive and connected during these unusual times.
We are therefore moving many of our planned events to a virtual setting, and will reschedule the remainder. Our partner organisations are doing the same.
Please keep an eye on the events section for the revised programme. Members who are subscribed to email updates will continue to receive these as usual.
If you have any queries, please do get in touch via the usual channels. All administrative operations continue as normal and the committee is continuing to hold its monthly meetings virtually.
Thank you for your understanding and best wishes for the coming months. Stay safe!
