Cricket Media, in partnership with the Smithsonian's Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation, today opens the call for entries for the Spark!Lab Invent It Challenge. The Challenge offers eligible children from around the world the opportunity to showcase their creative thinking on a global stage, with the opportunity to win prizes such as a patent consultation from Nelson Mullins, LEGO kit, books from Smithsonian, and subscriptions to Cricket Media's Science Magazines.
This year's Challenge invites kids to think about a real-world environmental issue and design a planet-friendly solution. Specifically, the Challenge encourages them to tackle issues such as water scarcity, climate change, air or water pollution, endangered species and natural resource loss.
