Welcome aspiring inventors! Young Imagineers, presented by Equinor, celebrates the UK’s most creative young minds in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). The second year of the competition attracted entries from over 1,150 young people from across the UK who shared their ideas of inventions that would make tomorrow’s world a better place.
Ten finalists with the most imaginative entries were invited to the Science Museum in November to share their inventions with the competition judging panel.
2018 saw 10-year-old Millie from London win the competition with her ingenious ‘Solar Powered Pollution Sucking Robot Pigeon’. The pigeon is powered by energy generated from solar panels on its wings and tail, and was designed to reduce toxins in the air. The pigeon would use its beak to draw in polluted air, and filter it through its tummy before releasing clean air through its feathers. Millie’s invention will now be interpreted as a 3D model which will be displayed in the Science Museum on Level 3, outside Wonderlab: The Equinor Gallery.
Thank you to all those who entered the 2018 competition and shared their passion, enthusiasm and creativity for making tomorrow’s world a better place. Check back soon to see images of Millie’s model, which will be unveiled in March 2019.
