Spending an afternoon browsing the shops with friends and family brings many of us joy and satisfaction. But are we buying too many clothes? Are our crammed wardrobes and exploding laundry baskets causing us stress? Does social media make us feel pressured to never wear the same thing more than once? How can we positively change people’s buying habits and encourage consumers to buy fewer items? Could capsule wardrobes be the answer? A capsule wardrobe is a limited collection of essential items that coordinate well and can be worn in a number of different ways to cater for multiple occasions. Investing in a capsule wardrobe means that you buy less and wear more, which is good news for the planet and our wallets! Your challenge is to design a capsule wardrobe of no more than 12 items. The collection should include clothes, accessories and seasonal staples for the unpredictable British weather. Your items can be for a male, female or unisex consumer. You should aim to source and create your items ethically to reduce harmful impacts on people and the environment. When developing the collection, please tell us: What items will be included in your capsule wardrobe? How the items can be worn in different ways and for different occasions? How your collection is suitable for all seasons? What fabrics you’ll be using and how you’re going to ensure that you’re selecting sustainable materials that are sourced ethically? How you’ll market the collection and convince more consumers to join the capsule fashion movement! How To Enter You can send us your submission in whatever format you like (for example as a word documet, PowerPoint presentation or even a short video) and feel free to include as many drawings or pictures as you like. Be creative, think about the future of fashion and how your response could make a difference. Good luck! The Prizes The chance to win a trip to Burberry’s HQ in London or Leeds- to tour their offices, meet their staff and learn about careers in the fashion industry. All winner will also receive a Burberry Prize!

ENTER HERE - https://www.mykindafuture.com/Challenges/BurberryChallenge11_12 Imagine the year is 2119, the students attending your school arrive in driverless cars, most lessons are taught by artificial intelligence robots and the UK has just experienced its hottest summer for the tenth year in a row! Climate change means more extreme weather conditions, heavy snowfall, stormy weather and flooding are now a regular occurrence (snowfall is now so common, schools regularly take part in annual snowman building competitions)! Your school has decided to rethink the design of their school uniform and want students to wear clothing that will better prepare them for extreme weather conditions. They also want the new uniform to have an impact on the environment by using sustainable and eco-friendly materials. The challenge is to create a brand new school uniform that’s adaptable to dramatic changes in the weather, has a low carbon footprint and is stylish and fun! When developing ideas, please answer the following questions: What items will be included in your uniform? (Remember to cover all seasons and don’t forget about PE!) What material(s) you’ll use to make it? How your uniform will have less of an impact on the environment? Why will students enjoy wearing your uniform design? What makes your design unique? What is the name of your design? (Make sure it’s original!) How To Enter You can send us your submission in whatever format you like (for example, as a word document, PowerPoint presentation or even a short video) and feel free to include as many drawings and pictures as you like. Be bold and think about the future of fashion. Good luck!

This collection of STEM clubs teaching materials are designed to help students discover how communities can put measures into place to make sure people and properties are safe, and look at how the IoT can bring additional benefits to this safety.
What is the Internet of Things (IoT) and how can it help firefighting in the future? These activities explore how design can improve the equipment that fire fighters use, improving safety for both the general public and the fire fighters themselves. The single-lesson one-hour activity requires no previous experience of the Internet of things and comes with the introductory material to explore the topic with the class. The extended five-hour activity supports students to explore prototyping their own product, using their own research of fire fighting equipment to develop Internet of Things design ideas and prototypes.
Programme code runs on individual devices and as cloud applications, with data sent to and from machines and humans alike. These introductory activities explore the design of algorithms that span the internet of things, and consider the hardware components that comprise it. No previous programming experience is required, and no equipment is necessary – although students may wish to extend their investigations through tinkering or prototyping using low-cost computing devices.
