Have your say

PUPILS from across Portsmouth are being invited to design the school science lab of the future for a chance to win £20,000 worth of laboratory furniture for their school.

Talented young scientists, designers and engineers are being asked to submit their futuristic designs as part of a competition run by education interior furniture specialists Innova Design Solutions.

In addition to the main prize of the chance to transform their school with state-of-the-art laboratory furniture, the winning team will also take home a £1,000 prize to share or £250 for an individual entry.

The competition, which is open to 11 to 16-year-olds aims to discover how today’s students think science teaching and classrooms will change.

Melanie Laing, director at Innova Design Solutions said: ‘The Lab of the Future competition is a great opportunity for young designers and scientists of tomorrow to flex their creative muscles and let their imaginations run wild.’

The competition is open until Friday, February 27. Visit
