The Intellectual Property Office are celebrating the 40th birthday of the world-famous Aardman studios. With the help of Wallace and Gromit, Morph, Shaun the Sheep and Timmy too, we are asking young people aged 4-16 to develop some cracking ideas to help celebrate this special birthday.

Each of the age specific competitions includes free curriculum linked lesson plans and fun activities all free to download from Cracking Ideas website.

There are excellent prizes up for grabs. The winning school of each age group will receive:

  • a visit from an Aardman expert for model-making workshop sessions and a screening in your school
  • plus a multi-user licence for the Animate It! software by Kudlian for your school

There is plenty more information, free teaching resources and inspiration on Cracking Ideas to kick start your pupils entries.

Its time to get cracking and take part!
