The UK-based educational non-profit organization Little Inventors gives children around the world a basic assignment: Invent something that would a solve problem and then draw it. Although it may seem overly simple, according the programs manager and founders, its simplicity is its secret weapon. Little kids are often intimidated by being asked to detail a scientific or engineering process or to express themselves artistically. Asking a child to present their ideas to audiences can be equally off putting. However, by blending whimsical yet problem solving ideas of invention with the intimacy of drawing, the threshold for engagement is significantly lowered. From this basic inquiry, comes a fount of whimsy and creativity. The resulting doodles can be profound such as The Worry Destroyer which grinds worries into pulp, to silly creations like Space-amils to allow interplanet exploration by cats, to practical inventions such as The Untopple-able Water Bottle. Little Inventors then works with a team engineers, designers, and artists, to bring some of the inventions to life and present them to wider audiences.
