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 am a big KID. I only make things that make me and others smile. I've had a look at the drawings of the children and their is nothing that fills me with more joy than the innocent genius. I would love to get involved by being able to realise their drawings into reality. Please let me know if this would be possible.
I have worked with little inventors before, both with Katherine and Chelsea, and I would love to continue being involved in any way possible.
Hi there, let me introduce myself, i'm a car mechanic by origin, changed to a household applience mechanic. One day in the week i teach a technical class at a elementary school and teach them about upcycling, and that they can make whatever they can imagine. Kids have such a big imagination and talent that is going to waste. I teach them not to be scared of failing and doing what you love, following your dreams and passions. Beside all of this i'm a father and an functional artist. I would love to hear from you.
I use satellite imagery to make cool pictures of our planet, not just because it is beautiful but also it's very useful. It helps monitor the Climate Change impacts, follow icebergs and ships from space, look at the health of our crops and even estimate potato fields or even how much is grown all over Canada, and much much more! Beside my passion for Space, I make pottery. I have a small workshop at home, which helps develop my creativity.
An Engineer at the Canadian Space Agency, but still I can not get enough of a 3D printer. I am having a blast learning the techniques and improving my prints.
