Powering the Future: South Tyneside and Beyond! Exhibition


Suitable for all ages

Throughout Spring 2023, school pupils from across South Tyneside were invited to take part in an invention challenge with Little Inventors, a creative education organisation that stimulates children’s imaginations by taking their ideas seriously and bringing them to life.

Inspired and funded by Dogger Bank Wind Farm, the challenge explored the role of wind and other forms of renewable energy in helping address climate change.

Hundreds of ideas were submitted and six were chosen by a panel of young inventors and industry representatives to be brought to life and displayed at the Word.

The Powering the Future: South Tyneside and Beyond! Exhibition will showcase the six inventions brought to life as well as give you the opportunity to submit your world changing idea which could be brought to life later in the year.

See the exhibition at The Word from Thursday 20 July until Sunday 3 December. 

Powering the Future: South Tyneside and Beyond! has been delivered by Little Inventors in partnership with South Tyneside Council and Dogger Bank Wind Farm.

Dogger Bank Wind Farm is being constructed off the North East Coast and will be the world’s largest offshore wind farm, capable of powering 6 million British homes. The project will generate a vast source of renewable energy, harnessing the power of wind to provide sustainable energy and reduce use of fossil fuels.
