Science Upcycling Competition

Waste Week 2017

Inspired by one of our favourite Pod schools, the focus of the 2017 campaign (6th-10th March) will be on upcycling and getting everyone to think differently about waste.

We want young people to get creative and use their design and engineering skills – upcycling old gardening equipment and tools into something new!

Entry criteria

The finished object should be:

  • innovative and/ or easily replicated
  • you should be able to clearly see what the item was made from
  • designed to last (otherwise it could end up in landfill anyway)
  • Plus, please make sure that you consider health and safety.

Submit your completed entry form with a photo of your creation before midnight on 10 March 2017.

Each category has a top prize of £300, with runners up prizes of 2 x £100 and 4 x £50. All prizes will be in the form of Amazon vouchers and awarded to the school, not the individual. Plus, each entry will be placed into a draw to win a gardening voucher.

From wellies to watering cans there are many items that can be upcycled! Here’s some inspiration to get you started…

Miss Powell mentioned that children can bring their entries into school as well so we can see the wonderful creations we have all made!
