Inventors Challenge: A collaboration between SES & YES

In 2017, we began a new collaboration with our partner Young Enterprise Scotland (YES) to deliver enterprising projects to school pupils in Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen. YES employed two new Scotland's Enterprising Schools Programme Executives, Lucy and Lucia, who worked to deliver the Inventors Challenge in schools in Glasgow.

Scotland has a rich history of invention and innovation so as part of the challenge young people spent time learning about Scottish inventors and their work. The pupils were then asked to come up with their own ideas for inventions and encouraged to be as creative as possible – no idea is too big, bold or impossible!

The young people also learnt valuable insight into branding and marketing and then applied this to their own invention by creating an advertisement. Alternatively, they could also use recycled objects to create a prototype of their invention.

This challenge is a fun and engaging way for young people to learn about Scotland's history whilst using their own creativity to develop valuable skills. We look forward to seeing the innovative ideas that are developed in sessions to come!

The Inventors Challenge is an ongoing programme delivered by YES. You can read more about the Inventors Challenge on the Young Enterprise Scotland website.
