Having you got a chocolate loving, budding designer in the family?
Well I have the competition for them!!
The IET is currently running a competition supported by Cadbury’s to challenge kids to engineer the chocolate bar of the future – and the winning child will get the chance to go and see their creation being made!
Isaac and Eliza have had great fun coming up with their ideal chocolate bars. Well, when I say bars, Isaac has created a chocolate pizza covered with popping candy and tangfastics and Eliza has invented a chocolate fairy wand, complete with chocolate ribbons and edible sparkles.
For the chance to win a once in a lifetime experience at the Bournville Factory to engineer their winning entry in real life, simply head to the website and download the entry form.
On the form they can choose a name for their creation, describe how it will be manufactured and packaged as well as its shape, taste and flavours. They are also encouraged to send a video or picture too.
The competition aims to engage kids in the joy of engineering and innovation, while nurturing their curiosity through the medium of chocolate.
The competition is open to children aged between 8 and 16, and closes on the 16 September 2017. You can see full details here: https://www.engineer-a-
The winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to the Bournville Factory in Birmingham to engineer their winning design alongside chocolate experts and hear from a real life engineer, plus a trip to Cadbury World, and an iPad Mini.
Ten runners up will win a family ticket to Cadbury World.
