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?
Join the fun!

I run a makerspace called Machines Room and i'm Chief Maker at Little Inventors!
I studied art, and love design. I do lots of DIY, fixing and helping others make things.
I worked on medical products, across transportation design (Zurich Tram), skis, hearing aids to user interface design (the awesome Polar Baer for Amphiro ;-). Being creative is so much more than hobby and yet still too often left out in so many fields. I worked for a big agency and we did design strategy consulting with them to get that 'out of the box' thinking. Creativity is key.I would like to put up some project weeks maybe in schools. I'd like to help the kids to have joy with their creativity and to let that skill grow.
