Little Inventors turns children's ideas into reality!

Calling all children aged 5–12, to share their ideas with the world!

We encourage all invention ideas – from the helpful and practical, to the wacky and bonkers.

Makeathon at the National Glass Centre!

Participants skilled-up in a sculpture masterclass with artist William Alexander and then modelled magnificent inventions, chosen from a shortlist of entries to our North 2030 challenge.

The best renditions created in cardboard will be showcased in the Discovery Museum as a part of the Great Exhibition of the North!
