Have you ever wondered how new things get invented?
Usually it is to help with a problem or to meet the needs of a specific type of customer.
Create a sketch of your invention and put your ideas down on paper.
Make a model (sometimes called a prototype) to show how your invention would work.
Use materials you can find easily at home, like craft supplies, boxes or balloons.
All new ideas need to be shared!
You could present your invention to your family or make a video about it to send to friends, relatives or your teacher.
Here are some brilliant (and hilarious) kid-inventors demonstrating their ideas on the Ellen show.
