Children’s Section

Theme – Flight

The theme has been selected to reflect on the wonder of flight and how humans have studied nature to find our own ways to fly.

This covers such a huge area, from insects and birds who have the natural ability to fly, through to humans who have studied nature and over the years have developed their own techniques to take to the air – some more successful than others!

We welcome entries covering flight from any and all perspectives. Children are invited to enter any of the classes outlined below and are encouraged to research flight in nature OR the history of flight to give them inspiration.

All Classes are Free to Enter
