Pupils are being asked to draw their own robots and write about all things robot as part of a UK-wide competition.

Open for children aged five to 11, entrants to the Draw a Robot challenge are asked to draw a robot that they would like to see in the future.

The robot could be designed to accomplish any task or job. The children can use pencils, pens, paints, or even natural materials and they can explain its functions by labelling key features and special gadgets on the drawing and writing a short design spec.

Meanwhile, the writing challenge – entitled Once Upon A Robot and open to children aged seven to 11 – asks pupils to write a creative short story featuring any kind of robot or robots. The story could be an action-packed thriller, a compelling mystery, or even a light-hearted comedy. Entrants will have 800-words.
