National Farmvention STEM competition finalist
Farmvention (when farming meets invention) is a national STEM competition run by the NFU aimed at primary school children.
There are three exciting problem based challenges that can be entered by individual children or in teams. Designed to make children think about the day to day issues faced by farmers and growers in England and Wales, each challenge is supported by curriculum linked resources created in partnership with the Association for Science Education (ASE).
Afeefa, who is in Year 3, created the entry below. She is a lower key stage 2 finalist for the Tractor of the Future and will present her ideas at the Houses of Parliament - watch this space! She has also won a fully funded farm visit for up to 35 children, £600 to spend on robotics products and a visit from Small Robot Company to come and work with her on her design. We are very proud of her!
