The shortlist was selected by an adult judging panel, chaired by volcano scientist Katharine Cashman FRS, and featuring BBC broadcaster Gabby Logan, award-winning author Sharna Jackson, teacher Robin James and chemist Andy Jupp.
Now it’s over to the scrutinising eyes of over 11,500 young judges, drawn from 537 schools, science centres, and community groups from across the UK, to read and declare their champion. The winner will be announced at an award ceremony in February 2022.
