The Young People's Book Prize aims to promote literacy in young people and to inspire them to read about science. It also supports the writing of excellent, accessible STEM books for under-14s.
A shortlisting panel made up of scientists, an actor, a teacher, and children’s authors has whittled down dozens of titles to six of the year’s most fascinating books which can be seen below. More than 14,000 young judges, drawn from over 700 schools, science clubs and youth groups from across the UK, have been reading and reviewing these six books and are ready to declare their champion.
The winning book will be announced during an online award ceremony on Tuesday 7 March 2023.
