Metro Community Takeover - Little Inventor Competition (competition now closed)

We teamed up with Little Inventors to ask school pupils across Tyne and Wear to invent new and fun ways to use Metro.  Inventions could have been something to help make a Metro train driver’s job even more exciting, a brand new way for a Metro train to travel or a way to make Metro journeys more fun! 

The children were given the freedom and inspiration to use their imagination and creativity to come up with fantastic, funny and far-out invention ideas.  You can see all of the competition entries on the Little Inventors website here.

The inventions of four school children were chosen as the winners.  The four inventors worked with a 3D animator to bring their inventions to life. You can see the winning entry designs and 3D images below.

The winning designs will be displayed on trains and at Longbenton, Heworth and Gateshead Stadium stations between March and April 2022.
