The ‘Little Inventors: Home’ project was part of Belfast City Council’s wider (Y)Our Home initiative. Working with the Nerve Belfast Creative Learning Centre, pupils were asked to come up with ideas for inventions on the theme and meaning of ‘home’ and what ‘home’ could mean for future generations.
Participants could invent something specific for a family member or based on a family member, or even think up a solution to everyday problems families encounter. The challenge brought STEM learning into the classroom.
Eight ideas were made real by talented makers and, in total, 180 pupils from six schools took part in the challenge!
