Do you have bright ideas? Ideas for inventions that change society or, at least, make life easier for somebody? Perhaps we all do sometimes but we don't often make the idea a reality. Recently, in Britain, there was a competition called British Designers for Tomorrow. The competition encouraged young people to carry out their ideas. There were two groups in the contest: Group One was for school children under 16. And there were eleven prize-winners altogether.
Neil Hunt, one of the prize-winners, was called “Sunshine Superman”. It's important when people study the weather to be able to record sunshine accurately. We need to know how many hours of sunshine we have and how strong it is .Most sunshine recorders only record direct sunlight. Neil's more accurate and this is very important for research into way of using solar power.
You can do so much with animated cartoon. Look at Simon West's idea for animated road signs. He uses pictures which appear to move as you go nearer to or farther from them. This isn't a new idea. But it is mew to use these pictures on road signs. “We found that people were more likely to see moving signs,” said Simon, now you can really see rocks falling, trains moving, horses running or a car falling over the edge of a cliff. Write a warning!
The ideas in the competition were so inventive that we are surprised that British industry doesn't ask more school children for suggestions. Perhaps this will be the start of “pupil power!”.
