Kids Invent Stuff

Launched in 2015, the YouTube channel Kids Invent Stuff offers kids "the chance to get their invention ideas built by real engineers." Each month, the Kids Invent Stuff team provides a new challenge prompt and welcomes kids to submit a related idea. These challenges vary; for example, July's challenge is "Water Crossing Inventions." Using the Submit Your Invention form on the website, kids provide background information about their idea, as well as any visual aids. Generally, one idea is chosen from these submissions per month. When an idea is selected the Kids Invent Stuff team of engineers bring the invention to life and record it on their YouTube channel (linked on the site via the "Watch Now" box). Recent videos showcase a walk-through shower (see the May 30, 2020 video) and an electric dog car (see the March 28, 2020 video). In the five years that the channel has been active it has garnered a significant following (more than 750,000 views and a feature on BBC News Online). Kids Invent Stuff is sponsored by a variety of organizations, including Autodesk and The Institution of Engineering and Technology. The complete list of sponsors is available on the site.
