Inventors Challenge - Can you help?

Name a Scottish Inventor? Can you remember one?This is the first question pupils are asked when they attend an Inventors Challenge event in their primary school. The answers include John Logie Baird and Alexander Graham Bell, two of the most famous Inventors.Our Inventors Challenge is a fun enterprising day for the pupils where they get to use their imagination and creativity, work in a team and come up with their own inventions. Working in small groups the primary pupils make posters and design their inventions before showing them off to the rest of their class. Undoubtedly a fun day, one pupil even went as far to say that it was the 'best day of school ever”.The Inventors Challenge is a fantastic opportunity for pupils to learn about enterprise and other skills, which will then help them when they make the transition into secondary school and give pupils a taste for other enterprise programmes that are available to them in the future. We are looking for volunteers for Canberra Primary School in East kilbride to deliver their Inventors Challenge. Could you spare some time on Friday 2nd november to provide help and support; help the pupils work as a team, help them prepare their poster and presentation and above all make it an enjoyable day for all involved. No special skills are required, just a willingness to help as all volunteers will be briefed and supported by our YES team.

If you areinterested please email Marlyn Hosie at: or call 0141 202 0650. Your helpwould be greatly appreciated.
