Inventors Wanted: Win a family trip to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida with M&S

It’s come to that time of year when many of us are thinking about getting set for September. The situation’s a little bit different in our household since we’ll be home educating but I know that many of you have children who’ll be starting or returning to school. M&S’s “Inventors Wanted” competition will almost certainly be of interest to you. I’m tempted to invent a homeschool uniform, to be honest!

Dream up the most wildly creative school uniform invention you can and enter the Inventors Wanted competition to win a family trip to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida to meet a real astronaut! Entries so far have included “a spray on uniform”, “a smell nice PE bag”, “an intelligent ruck sack”, “virtual reality glasses” and much more.

M&S Kidswear have their own school uniform innovations this year like Stainaway shirts that feature a handy finish that makes stains wash away easier and Adjust-a-Hem trousers which have an extra 3 inches in length that you can let down as your child grows (I know my mum would have loved that when we were in school).

    wow what an amazing prize!! I think you should totally invent a home school (I actually wrote home-birth first time round as I got distracted by your ‘you might also like’ button, that would be quite funny) uniform to enter x

    Designing a school uniform for this contest could entertain my kids one day during this school holiday and it is a great prize! Thanks for highlighting this competition!
