What can engineers do to help future proof the world? You can use the questions below to get you thinking or think of your own topic. Brain Bots could help you explore ideas for your research presentation, or you can just do it for fun! We can’t wait to hear what you’ve come up with.

• Energy is all around us. It can be harnessed from many forms including the kinetic energy from a dance floor to food waste. What weird and wonderful ways of collecting energy can you think of?
• Every day tonnes of plastic are thrown away. Can you think of any alternatives to plastic?
• What is an inventive way to clean up pollution from the water?
• With an increasing population engineers are thinking about creative ways of growing food like vertical farming and even growing food on a lake. Can you think of new ways of growing food?
