Cambridge Science Centre writes:
Our communities are changing fast! Technology is moving at an ever-increasing pace. Interest in climate change, pollution, our local environment and beyond is increasing rapidly. School and home life is also changing as new technologies advance and particularly so, as we navigate our way through the pandemic. But what will our future communities really look like? What do young people feel will make a huge difference to their lives, the way they learn, the way they work and how they will look after their families?
Cambridge Science Centre invites youngsters between 6-11 to think about how they would make a difference to their future community. They can choose any area of their community they wish to change. It could be the way they travel, how they recycle waste, how they attend school, the changes they would make to buildings they live or work in, places they visit, or even suggest changes to parks and playgrounds.
Their entries will be judged by famous science author Kate Pankhurst and renowned naturalist Jon Drori. Together, with Cambridge Science Centre, they challenge youngsters to design and share changes to make things better for where and how they live!
Who can enter:
Ages: 6-8 years at Primary school or home educated
Ages: 9-11 years at Primary school or home educated.
Both first prize winners will receive £50 in Amazon vouchers, plus a bundle of great books and a gift bag of Cambridge Science Centre goodies.
Their school will also win access to one of Cambridge Science Centre's VirtualSchoolTrip shows.
Runners up will receive £25 of Amazon vouchers, plus several great books and a gift bag of Cambridge Science Centre goodies.
Their school will also win access to one of our VirtualSchoolTrip shows.
Thanks goes to book sponsors, Bloomsbury Publishing, who have kindly donated the books from their fantastic range.
How to enter:
Submit either a single drawing, film, or model of your design with a short description of how and why you feel it will change your community. Only one entry can be submitted per child.
You can download a worksheet for your drawing from our website, www.cambridgesciencecentre.org. or send in a free hand drawing.
Remember to write your name, age, the school you attend and a contact telephone number for a parent or carer on your entry form.
