Kids Invent Stuff is the YouTube channel (as seen on The One Show and Tomorrows World Live) 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!
This month we’re looking for for ideas for Portable Inventions; inventions that you can carry around with you! Check out our video below for some inspiration and send us your ideas by the 25th December 2018 (Christmas Day!) for a chance to get your inventions 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.
