ENGins | The Tech News You Want
Your Engineering Inspiration for Sunday 12 July 2020

Are you looking to showcase your work and possibly be rewarded for it? We keep ENGins updated with competitions across engineering and the physical sciences to let you know about those opportunities.

Currently running competitions include the Cisco Global Problem Solver competition, with $350,000USD available for breakthrough digital technology; STEM for BRITAIN, which could have you presenting your work in Parliament; and the Young Persons' Lecture competition, which seeks material scientists to deliver short talks on the subject.

Whatever your area, make sure ENGins is tailored to it and you'll be delivered news of all relevant competitions.

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...
