Did you know that August is National Inventors Month in the USA? To celebrate I thought we would talk about a few of the things that it takes to be an inventor.
First, the most important thing: anyone can do it. You don’t have to have millions to make an invention, nor do you have to be a certain age. You also don’t have to have any specific degrees or qualifications.
Second, you need an idea, or lots of ideas. The ideas should be related to an area of need you see, like getting water into deserts or helping cars/drivers drive safer.
Third, you need to figure out how to make the idea work. They might have tried inventing cell phones before Alexander Graham Bell’s time, but without the initial concept and technology of a phone, it wouldn’t have worked.
Fourth, you have to do what you do best: be creative. The whole project is dependent on you being creative, feeling creative and thinking creatively.
Who knows, your creativity could save thousands or bring joy to thousands. What could you create that would help the world?
