Sports of the future competition

We want you to come up with exciting and imaginative designs for a new sporting invention that embraces engineering and technology. This could be inventing a piece of equipment for a new sport or developing a piece of equipment for a sport that already exists. From a supersonic tennis racket with the ultimate bouncy strings to trainers that can make you run faster – you just simply have to sketch your invention and tell us what it is and how it works.

Submissions will be scored by cycling champion Mark Cavendish, IET President Peter Bonfield and IET Young Women Engineer Ying Wan Loh – and the winner’s invention will be made into a prototype for the lucky champion!

The competition is open between 22 April – 11 May 2020 23:59 BST to children aged between 5-13 years old.

Kids, enter our Sports of the Future competition to design a new sporting invention and we will make it happen!

Deadline for entries 11 May 2020
