ENGins | The Tech News You Want
Your Engineering Inspiration for Saturday 11 July 2020

Competitions offer a brilliant way for you to showcase your work (and possibly be rewarded for it).

To let you know about these opportunities, ENGins is updated with competitions across engineering and the physical sciences.

Among those currently running: a handful of prizes for science writing, including the Levinson Prize and the the Biochemical Society's Science Communication Prize; the COINS Grand Challenge for innovation in the construction industry (with a top prize of $150,000); and the Young Champions of the Earth, which aims to celebrate 18–30 year-old environmentalists.

To stay in the loop, simply adjust your preferences—so that you're delivered content relevant to your field of expertise—and you'll be shown competition updates with the rest of your tailored content. Alternatively, the ENGins Competition Twitter page collates all competitions in one place!

Very best,

An unstable massive star has suddenly vanished from view, and astronomers aren’t sure if it collapsed into a black hole or is playing peek-a-boo behind galactic dust. The star was too far away to spot on its own, but it...
As researchers worldwide work toward a potential quantum internet, a major roadblock remains: How to build a device called a quantum repeater. Advances in quantum information science have brought on the possibility of a quantum internet—networks that carry information via...
In a world’s first, researchers in France and the U.S. have performed a pioneering experiment demonstrating “hybrid” quantum networking. The approach, which unites two distinct methods of encoding information in particles of light called photons, could eventually allow for more...
Anytime astronomers figure out a new way of looking for magnetic fields in ever more remote regions of the cosmos, inexplicably, they find them. These force fields — the same entities that emanate from fridge magnets — surround Earth, the...
