What is Farmvention?
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).
There are a host of amazing prizes for the winning schools. The overall winner will win the money can’t buy experience of their school being turned into a farm for the day. Finalists will present their ideas at a prestigious event at the Houses of Parliament during British Science and Engineering Week 2019 as well as winning fully funded farm visits, robotics kits, data loggers and chef visits. All entrants will become certified ‘farmventors’ and receive a reward pack including a certificate and mini prize. Entries close on 21 December 2018.
