Does your kid love to tinker?

Maybe they come up with outlandish ideas….that actually sound pretty awesome.

Are you looking ways to promote STEM in your home or classroom?

The CHITAG website describes the Young Inventor Challenge as an opportunity for children ages 6 to 18 to showcase their own original toy & game inventions to toy & game industry professionals, members of media and the general public.

What a great experience and so fun for families or classrooms to participate in!

The deadline to register is October 28, 2017 and all entry materials need to be submitted November 4th, 2017.

We’re planning to do this with our kids and will be posting all about inventions, including the steps you can take to invent your own toy or game at home or in the classroom! We hope to see you and your kids at CHITAG on November 18, 2017!

Here’s a little peek at last year’s Young Inventor Challenge so you can get an idea of what to expect:
