Is your child fantastic at coming up with new, innovative ideas? Has he or she spotted the need for an invention to make life that little bit easier?
Origin’s littleBIGidea is the big competition for inventive little kids! In 2018, LittleBIGIdea is back for its fourth year, and its organisers are calling for entries from kids right across Australia. School-aged kids in grades three to eight are eligible to enter, in three age categories.
This competition is a fantastic opportunity for kids to showcase their creativity, critical thinking abilities and design skills.
Entries will be judged by a panel of judges in mid-October, and twelve finalists will be selected. They’ll be invited to a day-long workshop in Melbourne, run by Engineers Without Borders. They’ll be guided on how to refine their invention, and how to put together a final video pitch. From these video pitches, the judges will declare the 3 winners!
Next, judges will select a winner from each category – Years 3 & 4, Years 5 & 6 and Years 7 & 8 – and all three winners will go (with a parent) on an all-expenses-paid innovation adventure to the USA!!!
They’ll visit NASA Kennedy Space Centre, Epcot Theme Park at Disneyworld and Ripley’s Believe It or Not.
With these incredible, life-changing prizes up for grabs, who wouldn’t want to create an entry!?
Entries close 7 September.
Best of luck with all your amazing entries!
