Hamster-powered vegetable gardens, multi-tasking hats with limbs and rubber-producing clouds. Our visitors are a creative lot.
We give our visitors the tools (colouring pencils and paper) to doodle down any ideas they have whilst in our Launchpad gallery.
Some creations are pure genius. Others, lets face it, are a bit weird. However, there is definitely a common theme. Most of the inventions we get from the kiddies are either about food or homework/housework robots. Basically anything that makes their lives easier.
Here’s a small selection of the inventions drawn up by some of our imaginative visitors. Click on any image to see bigger pictures.
Explainer Fact: We get through 100,000 paper trace cards every year (used ones get recycled).
