About

Kids Invent Stuff is the YouTube channel (as seen on The One Show, BBC News Online and Tomorrows World Live) where 4-11 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 and each month one idea is built and tested on camera, with hilarious consequences.

For our current invention challenge we’re asking kids to redesign Santa’s Sleigh! Your ideas might include crazy ways to deliver presents, special gadgets for Santa to use or a completely new sleigh design! Watch our video below for more details and you can download our worksheet and activity for the challenge HERE. The closing date is November 25th 2020. A massive ‘Thank you’ to the IET for supporting this challenge! Happy Inventing!
