Kid Inventors’ Day

Water skis. Television. Earmuffs. The Popsicle. What do they have in common? All were invented by kids!
500,000 children and teens invent gadgets and games each year. These innovations help make our lives easier – and more fun!
K.I.D. – Kid Inventors’ Day is celebrated annually on January 17th, the birth anniversary of Benjamin Franklin, who invented the first swim flippers almost 300 years ago at age 12! Franklin was born in 1706 in Boston, Massachusetts, which was then a British colony. Ben Franklin believed that people volunteering together in a spirit of cooperation could accomplish great things. Driven by a strong sense of civic duty, he involved himself in his community and his nation. Always mindful of the “greater good,” Franklin helped establish or improve institutions such as circulating libraries, public hospitals, mutual insurance companies, volunteer fire departments, agricultural colleges, and intellectual societies.
Why celebrate K.I.D.?
To acknowledge past and present accomplishments of kid inventors; To encourage the creativity of future kid inventors.
