Santa challenges you to design a new super sleigh!

Download our activity sheet below and get busy making a super sleigh design for Santa. Have a think about fun features to help make presents, eco-friendly ideas for our planet and awesome storage ideas - after all, Santa's sleigh must carry a lot of gifts! Perhaps your idea is something sustainable, with green tech or robots to help Santa. This is no longer a live competition, but you can still download the free activity sheet to get some friends or family together and run your own mini-competition with prizes for the best inventions.

And the 2020 winner is…

…10 year-old Isaac with his ‘mega-sleigh’ invention. Well done! Our friends at Kids Invent Stuff worked hard to make Isaac’s eco-invention out of recycled items and put it to the test in real life. Check out the videos below to see what happened.

It’s not too late to take part in another of Santa’s challenges, so visit Santa's STEM Workshop this year to find the latest collection of activities!

Why not take part in our cardboard box design challenge?

Starting with a cardboard box, we’re asking children to consider all the possible creations they’d like to make.

No idea is too big! Our challenge is suitable for primary and secondary children, just use our dedicated design sheets to help you inspire kids to use STEM skills and get creative.

Why not make a castle with a drawbridge, use a Micro:bit from school in the design, or reuse recycled and everyday objects around the home to create a fun, STEM masterpiece this festive season?
