STEAM Competition!

Following the huge success of our Stay Creative competition, which saw over 250 entries submitted, we are launching our next Trust community competition! This time, we are having a STEAM focus; asking students to demonstrate their skills and interests in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. 

The competition has been created by teachers across the Trust and is for ALL students at any of Valley Invicta Academies Trust schools to take part in!

All you have to do is visit: and enter the password VIATsteam2020! (don't forget the exclamation mark!)

You will then be able to see a host of STEAM-based challenges and projects you can replicate or take inspiration from. Once you have created your own piece of work, you please send a photo of it to: to take part in the competition. You can submit as many entries as you want to.

Once you have submitted your work, it will be uploaded into a padlet here:, using the same password, where you will see your initials, your year group and the VIAT school you attend.

The deadline for the competition is Monday 1 June. After that date has passed, a vote will be opened for people to choose their favourite primary and secondary entries. Winners in each category will be announced when the vote closes.

New ideas, videos and tutorials will be added to the site on a daily basis to inspire your STEAM skills and creativity. We can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!
