Design a new superhero and WIN!

To celebrate British Science Week (8-17th March), we challenged children to design a new SuperQuesters character (with a special tech feature or superpower which helps the environment) to win SuperQuesters goodies.


Congratulations to 8-year-old Yusra, whose brilliant superhero Zapping Zara was chosen as the winner by SuperQuesters authors Dr Thomas Bernard and Lisa Moss!

Zapping Zara uses her hands to zap any pollution in the sea or on land into a small recycled item. She also has a solar powered ultra zapinator made with Bea Bumble, turning sea pollution into sea creatures. Her outfit is made from recycled items and the jewels were once pollution at the bottom of the ocean.


RobotThe authors said, "We were absolutely amazed by the creativity, depth and ingenuity that went into this character concept and design. We love that Zapping Zara uses her own natural superpowers not only to clean up the environment and make recycled items, but she also teams up with Bea Bumble to create a new invention to repopulate the ocean, turning sea pollution into sea creatures, WOW!".

As part of her prize, Yusra has also chosen to name the SuperQuesters good pirate robot 'Captain Cleanbot'
