Inventors’ Resources

Tools for Inventing

We are thrilled that you want to invent! The Young Inventors’ Program® is all about YOU, the inventor. We collect materials, presentations, and tips to help you succeed at bringing your ideas into working inventions — even if there are a few stumbles along the way.

Inventor’s Journal

YIP Inventor’s Journal provides space for you to journal, brainstorm, and document your invention journey. Your teacher/leader/mentor may choose to run your YIP program without journals; however all students competing in the Northern New England Invention Convention and Invention Convention U.S. Nationals are required to present an invention journal or notebook that documents their process.
