Challenges and collections
Put your inventing skills to the test with a Little Inventors challenge!
Nearly a fifth of the food we buy ends up in the bin! And lots of that is food that is perfectly edible, but still we throw it away because we prepare too much or we're not sure about how fresh it is.
We challenge you to become a food hero: can you invent something to help reduce the food you throw away at home?
Can you think up invention ideas to generate energy, save energy or use energy better?
