The IET 2014 Power Academy Essay Challenge
Every year, the Power Academy invites scholars to write a mini-essay on a chosen topic. The winners will be announced at the power academy dinner on 24 July 2014 and will receive an invitation to attend the IET Annual Dinner in 2014 and put up in a London Hotel.
The top three essayists will also attend an international conference next year.
The winners in 2014 will be attending Renewable Power Generation Conference
This year, scholars are invited to write 700 words on the following topic:
‘In 2015, there will be a UK lead mission to the International Space Station. By tradition, members of the public are invited to propose a name for the mission. What name would you choose and why? The name needs to reflect the project mission, be short and memorable, and something that will not be misunderstood in translation. It cannot be the name of a real person or place, but mythological or fictional characters are allowed.’
Please send your essay to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, 30 June 2014
