Put your inventing skills to the test with a Little Inventors challenge!

Showing 9 to 16 of 24

Participants chose from one of the two themes to help them think up an ingenious invention to protect our planet! 


Animals and plants make homes in wild habitats like deserts and forests, but they also live in the cities, amongst us on the edges of buildings and between the cracks in the pavements. Wherever you live you can make a difference. What could you invent to bring more biodiversity to the area you live in?


Every decision we make has an impact on the planet, from what we eat to how we travel. Can you think of traditions in your country that are kinder to the environment and help to protect it? Think up an invention that would help us to throw fewer things away and waste less, to use less energy or to travel more sustainably!

What can you invent to help protect our oceans and water resources?

We all know how essential our water resources are and so we need your ideas to help to protect them and to keep them healthy, to help the people whose livelihoods come from working in them, and celebrate all the wonderful creatures which live underwater.

Take a deep dive with your imagination!


Think up and draw invention ideas that will help astronauts in outer space! Enter the challenge and help improve how astronauts explore the universe.

To help make the programme as accessible as possible, we’re accepting submissions for invention ideas as drawings (either photographs of drawings on paper, or digital drawing files) or photographs of sculptural submissions.


To enter, complete all the challenge entry sheets including:

  The game box cover design sheet
  The game cards design sheet
  The game description sheet

Then upload the sheets and your information below.

The first sheet should be your box cover design sheet. This must be an image such as jpeg, gif or png.

Then add the game card design sheet and the game information sheet in either Jpeg, Gif, PNG, PDF, Word or Powerpoint.
You can then upload optional extra sheets including photos of your design if you have them.
