From the sponsorship of Wonderlab: The Equinor Gallery at the Science Museum in London, to TechFest in Aberdeen, Equinor is inspiring the next generation and supporting the heroes of tomorrow through our long established talent development programme.
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. Now in its second year, the 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 a hover wheelchair, inspired by seeing his Nan struggle with the stairs and getting on public transport. A model was made of FInlay's hover wheelchair and put on display outside Wonderlab: The Equinor Gallery at the Science Museum.
