Sunderland Summer Challenge exhibition at the Sunderland Museum

Sunderland, UK

To celebrate the latest made real invention ideas, Little Inventors hosted an exhibition at the Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens

Little Inventors returned to Sunderland this summer for a collaboration with Sunderland City Council, supported by the Arts Council, Cultural Spring and Big Lottery!

The children came up with over 200 fantastic invention ideas, and four of the most Ingenious Inventions were made real by local makers and craftspeople! The exciting event culminated with a celebratory exhibition at the Sunderland Museum, showing all of the Invention ideas as well as the made real inventions!

The exhibition kicked off with an opening event on Saturday 30th of September, where the inventors met the makers to show and discuss their designs.

The designers and the makers proudly hold their certificates
