Wonderlab: The Equinor 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 Equinor and the Science Museum launched a nationwide competition to find Britain’s most imaginative and creative young people, Young Imagineers. The annual competition invites imaginative entrants aged 7-14 to design an invention that would make tomorrow’s world a better place. 2017's winner, Finlay aged 10, designed the Hover Wheelchair. Millie aged 10 was the 2018 winner with her Solar Powered Pollution Sucking Robot Pigeon. Each winning idea was made into a model and put on display outside Wonderlab: The Equinor Gallery at the Science Museum.
