Think like an engineer and win!

Get students to use their creativity and passion for protecting the planet. 

Reflect on a recent trip or day out (for example, a shopping centre, museum, park, fair, cinema, sporting event or activity camp).

Ask students how much ‘greener’ it could be? Discuss it with friends or at home and let us know!   

We will consider all ideas and will choose  ONE as our winner! 

What to do

Reflect on your recent trip or day out and come up with a list of ideas for how it could be made as ‘green’ as possible.  

All students who enter will receive a downloadable certificate to print at home or in school.

The winning entry will also receive a 6-month Tinker Crate subscription (STEM in a box, delivered to your home). 

  • How could we reduce our carbon footprint when travelling there?
  • Could power be generated in a different way? 
  • Think about the pros and cons of each idea you have 
  • How easy is it to do? How much impact could it have? Has it been tried before? How much would it cost? 

Select ONE idea from your list – discuss it and choose the best idea!
