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.

Manizales, Colombia (South America), Quebec, Canada

I am passionate about creativity, imagination and the link between art and science. After a few years of experience in science education and animation, I now work as a science extensionist during the day, and I study a distance science journalism course in the evening. I love to be on the lookout for the latest scientific discoveries and I have a concern to convey this passion for science to the general public in my work. I draw, I do scientific comics, I write poetry and I make origami. I have a 4 year old boy with whom we transformed our kitchen into a lab / workshop :)
