Official Partner of the Longitude Prize 2014

Posted on Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

National Schools Partnership is excited to be an official partner of the Longitude Prize 2014

To celebrate the 300th Anniversary, Nesta has revived the Longitude prize, encouraging inventors and scientist to solve one of the six key world problems with an award of £10m for the winning solution.

The public will decide which one of the six themes most relevant to the modern world to focus on. These are:

  • Flight – How can we fly without damaging the environment?
  • Food – How can we ensure everyone has nutritious, sustainable food?
  • Antibiotics – How can we prevent the rise of resistance to antibiotics?
  • Paralysis – How can we restore movement to those with paralysis?
  • Water – How can we ensure everyone can have access to safe and clean water?
  • Dementia – How can we help people with dementia to live independently for longer?

In collaboration with Nesta, National Schools Partnership have created a campaign and competition for schools to inspire students aged 10- 14 to play a part in solving some of the world’s global issues. Schools who register can gain access to resources for students to conduct an exciting campaign to generate votes.

The public vote will take place 22nd – 25th June and determine which area of science will benefit from the cash prize. Once the theme has been decided entrants will have up to five years to come up with a solution.

The Longitude Prize was originally founded in 1714 to solve one of the greatest problems facing Britain at the time: how to determine the ship’s longitude at sea. The challenge was solved by a Yorkshire watchmaker, John Harrison who designed the most precise clock allowing for accurate navigation.
