Inventing is easy! It is important to notice what surrounds us, and to try to improve it.
The aim of the National Contest of Young Inventors is to encourage children to think about
things that do not exist yet, to notice and find solutions to problems that surround them,
introduce the young to the exciting world of inventions and innovation and to acknowledge
young people with outstanding ideas as well as their supervisors and schools. The contest is
open for all students from year 1 to 12 and they are judged in three age groups.
