Your Child Could Win This Once-In-A-Lifetime Trip to Florida for Sharing their Little BIG Idea

Origin big little idea 1

Answer: Well, believe it or not, the answer is that they were all invented by kids!

It’s the school holiday, and no doubt most parents have already heard those dreaded words escape their child’s lips at least once; “I’m bored!”

But, there is a fantastic reason why kids should be putting down the electronic devices and firing up their brain-cells instead these holiday. Let’s face it, if the chance to win a trip to Florida, USA with a visit to NASA’s Cape Kennedy Space Station Centre, Epcot Theme Park, Walt Disney World and Ripley’s Believe it or Not isn’t enough to get them off the couch and put their thinking caps on, then nothing is!

Origin Energy’s littleBIGideas competition aims to provide a platform for students from grade 3-8 to continue Australia’s rich tradition of innovation which has seen the advent of solar hot water, the black box flight recorder, the fridge and the bionic ear, amongst many others, invented and developed right here in Australia.

Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
