Meet our Magnificent Makers
Little Inventors wants children to open their eyes to the world of invention and creativity. But beyond the invention drawings, there is a unique opportunity for children and makers, designers and artists to come together and collaborate to bring children’s imagination to life.
By taking children’s ideas seriously and presenting them in a professional manner through collaboration with skilled makers, we will help showcase children’s original ideas, perspectives and voices.
We also want to challenge the skills and experience of adult makers, and encourage them to push beyond their own limits by engaging with the highly imaginative and unhindered minds of young children.Do you make things?

I've loved making things since I was a kid, which led to me studying electrical engineering and having all kinds of "maker" related hobbies, from 3D printing and electronics to glass work. Professionally, I spread my love of science & engineering through Let's Talk Science's outreach program. I love sharing my passion for understanding how things work and creating new inventions with kids across Canada, and giving other volunteers the tools they need to share their passion too!
Hello! I'm an animator based in Toronto, Ontario and I specialize in digital frame-by-frame animation. I work digitally so a majority of my works use dark lines and are coloured in a vector style, but sometimes I like to merge the flat look of digital art and the tactile nature of physical art into one piece.
I also do 3D animation once in a while and I mostly create 3D models.
The Human Cell Atlas is an international scientific project to create a comprehensive reference maps of all human cells—the fundamental units of life—as a basis for both understanding human health and diagnosing, monitoring, and treating disease.
Ravensbourne University graduate, specialising in graphic design and murals!
I'm a 2d animator who dabbles in stop motion and clay moulding. I enjoy mixing analog and digital mediums to create hybrid installations. I am currently based in Toronto, pursuing a degree in Ocad University.
I am currently studying in OCAD University, in a program called Integrated Media. Mostly doing film and animation, or video installations. I am passionate about finding relations between the seemingly unrelated subjects, combine them to create an unique artwork.
As a retired physicist, I like to use my experience in electronics and skills in woodworking and 3D printing to create solutions to every day’s problems. I like to recycle obsolete electronic appliances and devices and harvest many of the still functioning components that often find a good use in my creations. I find the Little Inventors ideas a challenge to my creativity: how to reduce to practice, to make realistic models of the children’s extremely interesting conceptual ideas.
The creativity of young minds is a driving inspiration for my work. I enjoy re-contextualizing children's artwork through in-depth collaboration with my craft work. Mixed media elements allow me to fully describe the emotion of a piece and reiterate unconventional characteristics of children's designs.
Hi, I'm Jennifer! I'm currently a student at OCAD University and I mainly work in 2D animation! I hope that with my skills, I can make things come to life as well as connect and bring joy to others!
I'm a 2D animator and illustrator majoring Drawing and Painting and Expanded Animation. I love create a video using difference resources like digital collage and compose them in a harmony.
