Kids Invent Stuff is the YouTube channel where 5-11 year olds have the chance to get their invention ideas built by real engineers. We do this to give more primary school kids the chance to engage with real engineering projects.

Kids are encouraged to submit their ideas for inventions to solve a different challenge each month. Ideas can be submitted as drawings or videos uploaded below. The most creative inventions are showcased on our channel and each month one idea is built and tested on camera, with hilarious consequences.

We release a weekly video, every Saturday (at 6pm):


1st Saturday – New Invention Challenge launched

2nd Saturday – Invention Showcase – Picking an invention to build!

3rd Saturday – Building a kid’s invention

4th Saturday – Testing a kid’s invention!


For our current challenge we’re asking kids for single stages of a chain reaction or Rube Goldberg Machine that we can join together to create one big MACHINE!

You can download our worksheet for the challenge here. It’s great for schools and homeschoolers and there’s a making activity kids can do too!
