It’s Kid Inventor Day!

In honor of the occasion, FIRST® LEGO® League WORLD CLASSSM Global Innovation Ambassadors the Robolearners are sharing their top 10 tips for inventing.

  • Your innovation CAN change the world.
  • Don’t be scared to explore areas that you know little about
  • Work as a team with your fellow FIRST LEGO Leaguers, whether that is within current team or even other FIRST LEGO League teams.
  • By working together you can do your research faster!
  • Prototypes are important – there is a lot to learn from them.
  • Keep your focus.
  • Setting deadlines to finish certain things can really help to keep you pointed in the right direction.
  • Apply for your patents early!  Exposing your idea in public can hurt your chances for getting a patent.
  • You will learn a lot that will help you in life by exploring your innovative ideas.
  • Even if it takes a lot of work, it can be FUN!
