Rapid’s Young Inventors Competition

Leading education supplier Rapid Online has launched a competition to find the next big inventor in primary schools throughout the UK

The challenge is for children to draw their very own invention. They will be marked on the design’s creativity, the practicality of the invention and the quality of the drawing (the age of applicants will be taken into consideration).

Visit the competition page for more details and for the competition worksheets. The organisers recommend 30 minutes to an hour of class time to allow the children to really have fun with their inventions.

By entering, the pupils have a chance to win one of five LEGO WeDo Construction Sets for their classroom, as well as the complementary Software and Activity Pack. This is perfect considering the introduction of programming to the national syllabus. It’s also a lot of fun.
