Lions ROAR is an inspirational educational competition run in partnership with Lions Clubs and 8billionideas. This unique project inspires children between the ages of 7-11 years old to think big and dream big about their own ideas and their potential to change the world. Pupils are encouraged to think like entrepreneurs and develop a product that they believe will help to revolutionise the world.
We launched this project by watching a highly entertaining video, with some great ideas, to get us thinking. We then began to think about what makes us special and our own skills and potential to become entrepreneurs.
After half term we will be working in groups of up to 4 pupils to design and make a prototype of our very own products which aim to solve a world problem and make the world a better place to live in.
I think I can safely say that all of Shamrocks class were motivated and inspired and the creative juices were already flowing. Lots of innovative ideas and suggestions have already been shared. I cannot wait to see what the children come up with in their product design after half term.
In order to build our prototypes we will be needing junk model materials so please save your recycling for us and send it into Shamrocks after half term. Once the designs have been completed the children may have some more specific ideas on what kinds of boxes/containers/tubes etc. they will require to build their prototypes.
