The Small Print
The competition was free to enter. There were two categories:
UK (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland) - Altrincham Grammar School For Girls won
International (the rest of the world) - The English School, Kuwait won
For those in the UK there were individual prizes and physical items that were sent to the school as well as full access to both my GCSE and A Level websites. For international students there was a small prize sent in the post and access to the GCSE and A level websites.
To enter you should have subscribed to my YouTube channel 'Physics Online' and be a student, parent/carer, teacher or work in education. You must also nominate a school that will receive part of the prize (this will be sent directly to them). Although you can only enter once, multiple students from the same school may enter to increase the chance of your school winning the equipment.
The deadline for entries was midnight on Sunday 25th April 2021, with the winners announced at 6.30pm (UK time) during a YouTube livestream on Monday 26th April 2021. The lucky winner was notified by email.
I am really grateful that prizes have generously been donated by a number of amazing companies. Find more details below, including links to all of the products and their websites.
