Little Inventors

We want children to open their eyes to a world of invention and creativity to solve real-life problems. In Northern Ireland, around 670,000 people live in rural areas, some 37% of the population.

With the help of some magnificent makers, we made the ideas of 400 pupils across 16 primary schools a reality around ways to invent solutions to problems associated with living in rural areas
