The 2023 Competition is illustrated by these two items below, and the registration form link.
The deadline for submitting entries is midnight on Monday 14th August 2023 (UK time).
The procedure for submitting will be sent to those who have registered via the form below.
Some 1400 students signed up for the webinars. About 900 turned up, and this dropped to 150 by the end. So that we do not email so many students who are not going to do the actual competition, please could you register using the link here. This will enable us to keep in touch with those who want to take part in the competition. It was popular last year and we had over 40 entries in the end. Please register here to give us some contact names. If you are leaving school at the end of term, could you include a non-school email as schools often close your account when you leave.Registration form to enter the competition
You will see the variety of styles and you are not restricted to any particular form. These have different strengths in terms of their presentation, coding, apps, examples, etc.
The eleven week course, which was presented in 2023 from January to
April, accompanies the book Science by Simulation
written by Dr Andrew French and published by World Scientific. (There
is a 30% reduction promo code for ordering through the BPhO.)
