Welcome to the Autumn term Six Week STEM Club Challenge – Farmvention!
What is Farmvention?
Farmvention (when farming meets invention) is a national STEM competition run by NFU Education and supported by curriculum linked resources created in partnership with the Association for Science Education (ASE). It is aimed at primary school children.
There are a host of amazing prizes for the winning schools. Winners will present their ideas at a prestigious event at the Houses of Parliament, as well as winning fully-funded farm visits and much more! All entrants will become certified ‘farmventors’ and receive a reward pack including a certificate and mini prize.
Entries close on 23 December 2019.
