The museum says that Sheffield people have invented all sorts of things, from stainless steel to shorthand and from artificial bones to bobsleds.

This is your chance to design your own Sheffield invention that could make the world a better place.

All materials will be provided at the free event, which runs from noon to 3pm on Monday, August 1. No need to book, just drop in.
