Valter Prize

The Valter Prize competition is aimed at young people and encourages them to share in the excitement of seeing scientific principles in action.

The competition was set up as a result of a bequest by the late Richard Valter, with the fund being managed by Dorset ASSET. Richard was an active supporter in local IMechE activities and promoted engineering in schools.
