join the inventor’s challenge!

We invite kids of all ages around the world to invent a solution to a challenge faced by their school or community.

To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk.

~ Thomas Edison

This challenge, brought to you in collaboration with AT&T Aspire, is a celebration of child ingenuity. It starts on January 23, 2017 when kids of all ages are invited to make something amazing, cool, maybe even a bit wacky, using whatever tools are available. Then on or before Friday, February 24, the young inventors will share their creations in their schools, neighborhoods and online using #inventorschallenge #ATTimpact. For inspiration, watch videos from our 2016 Inventors Challenge participants.
