What is Farmvention?

Farmvention (when farming meets invention) is a national STEM competition run by NFU Education and aimed at children aged 5 – 14 (school years 1 -9) in England and Wales.

This year, the challenge is all about the problems that climate change creates for British farmers and how they are fighting it to become Climate Superheroes.

There are four themed inspiration hubs to get you thinking and each one is full of investigations to complete at home or school, alongside some exciting tours of our climate superheroes’ farms to inspire you.

You can enter the competition individually or as part of a team or class and there is a host of amazing prizes for the winning schools. Winners will present their ideas at a prestigious event at the Houses of Parliament and win £1000 for their school to spend on STEM or Outdoor Learning equipment! All entrants will become certified ‘farmventors’ and receive a reward pack including a certificate and mini prize. Entries close on 31 May 2021.

The Challenge:

Create an invention, innovation or idea to help British farmers continue to care for the environment and become Climate Super Heroes.
