The second year of the Powering the Future challenge has begun, as children across South Tyneside tackle sustainability through invention.
The Climate Champions Challenge has made it to South America. Three schools are expanding their creativity as they invent to protect our planet.
The winning inventions of our Powering the Future challenge have all been made real, now there isn't long to wait until they are exhibited at The Word in South Shields.
A young inventor from South Shields is to see his planet-saving idea spring to life, with the support of two South Tyneside pioneers.
