Sunderland Summer Challenge 2017

Sunderland, UK

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.

Barnes Park

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

We ran family workshops throughout the day to encourage children to come up and draw invention ideas! We were blown away by the amazing ideas we got on the day!

School workshops

We visited 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 the children's idea drawings, and those lucky enough to be made into real objects – at Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens. Dates to be confirmed, so watch this space!
