STEM Homework Challenge

Our challenge was to invent something to make our world a better place. Here is what we came up with.

Miss McVitie – I am impressed with all the hard work and time families put into this homework challenge. Well done, you have come up with some really imaginative ideas.

I invented something called ‘Shout a Light’. Whenever someone leaves the room it will shout “Have you switched the light off”.

I invented a pretend elephant to protect elephants from dying from poachers. When a poacher tries to take the tusk off, they get covered in explosive die pack in the colour red.

I invented something called ‘Photo Voltaic’ to generated light, heat and clean water for 3rd world countries.

We invented a poster to raise awareness for people to stop dropping litter and recycle it.

I invented an app called ‘Pollution is Pointless’ to encourage people to do things that reduces pollution instead of contributing to it.

I came up with an invention called ‘Imogen’s Bee Saver’ to try and save the bees.



I invented a nature bin to stop people from dropping litter.



I researched the five R’s for recycling.



We invented ‘Ellie 2000’ to stop poachers killing animals for their ivory.

We invented the ‘Auto-Picker’ to stop pollution caused by naughty people dropping litter.

I want people to stop killing animals. We don’t need them for food because we can eat fruit and veg.

I made a poster to tell people not to use cars, planes and trains as much to reduce pollution.

I made little feeding bags for cows to reduce methane gas produced.

I invented something called the FRC (Floating Rubbish Car) that goes in the ocean picks up litter on a con and it scoops up the rubbish and puts into into a recycling bin when back on land.

I invented eco-friendly flying cars because road traffic is a big problem in our world.

We invented The Tree Thingamigigy 1000. It cleans out greenhouse gases.
