Farmvention 2020

Farmvention (when farming meets invention) is a national STEM competition

Farmvention is run by the NFU aimed at primary and lower secondary school children launched in September 2020.  Entries close on 31 May 2021.

There are four exciting problem based challenges that can be entered by individual children or in teams. Designed to make children think about the day to day issues faced by farmers and growers in England and Wales, each challenge is supported by curriculum linked resources created in partnership with the Association for Science Education (ASE).


The National Farmers Union has worked in partnership with Association for Science Education to co-author the support resources for pupils. The resources have been developed to complement the Farmvention (when farming meets invention) national STEM competition. The resources also support aspects of the English National Curriculum for science, design and technology, English and literacy.
