Who are Little Inventors?

Little Inventors is a creative education organisation that inspires imagination by taking children’s amazing ideas seriously.

Our Mission!

To give children across the world the opportunity to develop and showcase their creativity and problem-solving skills, build their confidence, curiosity and resilience to become caring citizens of our planet, all invaluable attributes that will support them as adults in their everyday life and chosen career paths.

How we do this...


We create free resources for organisations, teachers and parents to encourage children to think up and draw great invention ideas. We work with partners to run challenges, events and workshops!


We challenge skilled experts and makers to work with children to turn their ideas into reality, from the practical to the fantastical, no limits.


We showcase children’s inventions online and in books and exhibitions to inspire tomorrow’s inventors, scientists, makers and problem-solvers to believe in their ability to make a difference.

We are always keen to hear about new ways to bring Little Inventors to children across the world, so get in touch if you want to work with us!
