Sunderland SEE Summer Challenge 2017

Sunderland, UK July 2017 - October 2017

Little Inventors returns to Sunderland this summer for a collaboration with Sunderland City Council, supported by the Arts Council, Cultural Spring and Big Lottery!

We are challenging children in Sunderland to come up with practical, bonkers or simply ingenious ideas throughout July! Three of these objects are to be made by local makers – and all ideas exhibited at the Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens this coming autumn.

Workshops & fun day

A FREE family funday focussed on all things science, engineering and the environment (SEE).

Barnes Park See on GoogleMaps

Saturday 1st July, 10am-5pm. FREE entry.

We're running family workshops throughout the day, so come along and get drawing! We'll supply everything you need – so you just need to bring yourselves. (Maybe a little picnic too, to make a day out of it)! See full event details.

School workshops

We will be visiting a number of primary schools in the Sunderland area before the end of term, to run free Little Inventors activities. We can't wait to see what amazing ideas our Sunderland Little Inventors come up with this time!!!

Exhibition of students ideas and made objects

We will hold an exhibition of all the students idea, and those lucky enough to be made into real objects – at Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens. Dates to be confirmed, so watch this space!
