Farmvention (when farming meets invention) is a national STEM competition run by NFU Education and aimed at children aged 5-14 in England and Wales.
This year, the challenge is all about the challenges that climate change creates for British farmers and how they are fighting it to become Climate Superheroes.
Entrants are being challenged to develop an invention, innovation or idea that would help British farmers care for the environment and reduce their impact on the climate. To help with this, the NFU has created brand new interactive 3D farm tours; children can meet Blackbrook Longhorn cattle with Farmer Joe, get inside the cab of a combine harvester with Farmer Olly, see how Farmer Andrew milks and feeds his cows using robots, and find out how The Small Robot Company develops robots to zap weeds and map farms using artificial intelligence.
