STA­TOIL and the Science Mu­seum are invit­ing ‘Young Imag­i­neers’ aged 7-14 to an­swer the ques­tion: What in­ven­tion would you cre­ate to make to­mor­row’s world a bet­ter place?

Whether it’s a tele­por­ta­tion de­vice, home­work ro­bot, a bis­cuit that can with­stand heavy dunk­ing, or some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent, this is an op­por­tu­nity for young brains to be cre­ative and think like a sci­en­tist!

The ten most imag­i­na­tive and in­spi­ra­tional en­tries will be given the chance to de­velop their in­ven­tion with the help of a pro­fes­sional de­signer, be­fore show­ing their idea to an ex­pert panel at the Science Mu­seum, in­clud­ing TV pre­sen­ters Steph McGovern and Greg Foot.

One over­all win­ner will then have their in­ven­tion cre­ated and dis­played for a month out­side Won­der­lab: The Sta­toil Gallery at the Science Mu­seum, where it will be seen by thou­sands of mu­seum vis­i­tors every week.

En­trants have un­til 6 Oc­to­ber 2017 to sub­mit a sim­ple sketch and a max­i­mum of 100 words.

The en­try form is at www.youngimag­i­neers.sta­
