LITTLE INVENTORS – WHAT FUTURE FOR ENERGY?
Dominic Wilcox, Sunderland-born designer and inventor will present Little Inventors, a creative initiative that takes children’s amazing ideas seriously and brings them to life working with local makers. From food waste to space travel, Little Inventors have tapped into children’s creative powers to engage them with the issues of today. Dominic will launch the new Pioneers Energy Challenge, a project for children aged 8 – 12 to invent better ways to make, use, store and stop wasting energy. He will be joined by Arthur, aged 10, who invented the sun-tracking Supergrow 11000, as featured on the BBC’s Gardener’s World show for a cleaner, fairer and safer clothing industry.
