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.

Brooklyn, NY, US

Hi, there! I'm a maker and designer working at the intersection of craft, invention, and social interaction. Materials and people are my passions, and I believe everyday inanimate objects are just as important as digital tools for bringing people together. If I can't get into a workshop to build things, I'll find ways to tinker around my apartment. I've always got scraps of things laying around waiting to be used.

Cairo, Middle East, Egypt

Hello! I am a maker/stop motion artist based in Cairo, Egypt. My background is Product design and I love combining animation and product design together. My workshop consists of hundreds of products that I collect from scrap markets, take apart and make something new from it. I love making people see things differently and challenge them to see endless possibilities for what an object can become.
