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?

Kids Invent Stuff is the YouTube channel (as seen on The One Show, BBC News Online and Tomorrows World Live) where children have the chance to get their invention ideas built by real engineers from popcorn-firing doorbells to a furry electric dog car. To date, they have brought to life over 30 kids’ invention ideas including a giant chain reaction machine from 60 kids’ invention ideas that set a new world record for the Year of Engineering.

They too want more school-aged kids to have the chance to engage with real engineering projects. This is why we have teamed up and we simply can’t wait to see your ideas!
