From the sponsorship of Wonderlab: The Statoil Gallery at the Science Museum in London, to TechFest in Aberdeen, Statoil is inspiring the next generation and supporting the heroes of tomorrow.
Wonderlab: The Statoil Gallery at the Science Museum builds on children’s natural curiosity in STEM to ensure long lasting engagement. With 50 wonders of science to enjoy, the gallery reveals the beauty of the science and maths that shape our everyday lives.
Building on the success of the ongoing Wonderlab gallery, in 2017 Statoil and the Science Museum launched a nationwide competition to find Britain’s most imaginative and creative young people, Young Imagineers. The competition invited imaginative entrants aged 7-14 to design an invention that would make tomorrow’s world a better place. 10 finalists were chosen to present their ideas to an expert panel including Steph McGovern, Greg Foot, Lopa Patel and Jill Tully. The winning idea will be designed and displayed at the Science Museum from February 2018.
