Lego and Meccano Inventors Competition

For Liskeard Unlocked and the Heritage Open Days

Fancy yourself an inventor?

This year’s Heritage Open Day theme is ‘astounding inventions,’ and to celebrate we have the perfect competition for all our budding inventors!

Without following instructions or sets, we want you to invent an astounding machine out of Lego or Meccano! The only rules are that the model can be no bigger than 50cm in any direction (the actual machine you’re designing can be much bigger), and it must come with a 75 word max. description of what the machine can do.

There are three different age categories, and the favourites for each category will go head to head on display at the museum, alongside their descriptions, during the Heritage Open Days (9th – 18th September).

Visitors to the museum will then pick their favourites through anonymous voting and the winner will receive a prize!


Please download an application form below, and email once completed, along with a photograph of your invention and your description to: OR bring hard copies of all three to Liskeard’s Tourist Information Centre.
