As the curtains close on our "Capturing Summer STEM in Action" photo competition, we want to take a moment to express our thanks to each of you who participated. Your enthusiasm, creativity, and passion for STEM was clear through the captivating photographs you submitted.

The objective of this competition was to explore and document the fascinating world of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics during the summer season. And you all exceeded our expectations! From the forces interacting on iconic structures to the intricate details of nature, technology, and experiments, your submissions truly showcased the beauty, diversity, and real-world applications of STEM subjects.

To all the photographers, thank you for sharing your unique perspectives and for bringing the theme "Summer STEM in Action" to life. Your contributions not only highlighted the significance of STEM in our daily lives but also inspired many in our community to view the world through a different lens.

I’d also like to say a massive thank you to all of you who popped in over the last couple of days to ‘Like’ your favourite entries, the top 5 were passed over to the STEM Learning Executive Team for their input then ranked 1st, 2nd, 3rd and honourable mentions. I am delighted to announce that:

Congratulations to the winners and mentions 🎉🎉🎉

It would be lovely if you could show us the images that won so we don't have to trek through the vast amount of thread replies on the original competition post.

This was such a fun competition and I will be looking forward to the next one 😁
