To help get children excited and ‘marvel’ at the world of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) we’ve teamed up with comic book artists Andy Lanning and Ant Williams to launch a new comic – the STEM Squad – and we are looking to recruit the next member of the team!
We’re challenging children to design their own superhero gadget that can make a positive impact on the world around them or a piece of assistive technology that can improve someone’s life. So, if you’ve ever dreamed of being a superhero, now’s your chance!
The winner will have a real-life prototype of their gadget made and be turned into a new superhero character in ‘The DM Universe’ comic strip, joining the STEM Squad to defeat the evil smog monster.
The competition is open for entries for children aged 5-13 until Wednesday 13th October.
Entries will be judged by IET immediate past president Danielle George, STEM Squad member James Young, mechanical engineer and report co-author Matt Dickinson and the comic book artists.
To be in with a chance of winning – send your drawing and explanation to SuperRealoes@theiet.org.uk
