Throughout the duration of the Exhibition, they will proudly showcase the children's inventions that have been brought to life by local Northern makers, within our PLAY+INVENT Space.

They will also be bringing the results of other fruitful Little Inventors challenges worldwide, alongside their North 2030 ideas.
