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 – Invention Showcase – Picking an invention to build!

2nd Saturday – New Invention Challenge launched

3rd Saturday – Building a kid’s invention

4th Saturday – Testing a kid’s invention!


This month we’re looking for ideas for Superhero Gadgets and we are going to be choosing one to build and test! Check out our video below for some inspiration and send us your ideas by the 28th May 2018 for a chance to get your invention made!

If you want to get involved with this challenge and make something at home then you might like to download our challenge worksheet. Great for use at home or in the classroom.
