Put your inventing skills to the test with a Little Inventors challenge!
We all have our favourite characters from books. But imagine if you could invent your very own, special character to call your own - created by your brilliant and unique imagination. What would they be? What would they do? Where would they live? Anything goes...
What is the Open Challenge you ask? Well, it's what it says on the tin, it's wide open for you to let your creativity flow and invent whatever you want! Yes, anything you can think of. How about a super scooter that the whole family can ride on? Or a device that stops your feet getting all sweaty (and stinky!)? Get thinking, get creating, and get making!
Take the challenge and we will give you ten bookish prompts to choose from! Will you invent a new potion to rival a certain marvellous medicine? Or design a very magical beast? We're sure you will find something to suit your reading taste. This challenge is perfect for all you little inventors that are bookworms too!
December is the season to hang the stockings, roll up the snowmen, and snuggle up with a hot chocolate. The Christmas period can get very busy - no one feels this more than Father Christmas! Did you invent something snazzy and creative and amazingly unique that helped him relax, helped with all the presents, or added improvements to his sleigh?
Do you dare to invent? We challenged you to come up with invention ideas that were useful, ingenious or just plain fun!
The Operation Lift Off: MISD Mission Moon project consisted of six space-themed activity packs designed to allow students to invent without limits. Together, we explored the depths of space and the outer limits of our imagination!
We tasked you with thinking up new, fun, or helpful invention ideas and to save your old, unwanted things from going in the bin! You had awesome ideas for brand new ‘re-inventions’!
Growing Together asked children who benefit from Children Heard and Seen's help to think about growing emotionally and ways to help each other grow. For Children's Mental Health Week 2022, we encouraged children to consider how they have grown and how they can help others to grow.
