Little inventors

Come explore cool machines invented by Jayla, Eric, Luiza, Onna, Ava, Simon, and Erica — seven little inventors, ages 6 to 11, from Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Saskatchewan whose inventions were brought to life thanks to Canadian builders and designers. The mission was to invent machines to help clean the oceans and make them healthier.

The Little Inventors project is about supporting and inspiring children around the world to use their boundless imaginations to come up with ingenious, fantastic, funny, or practical inventions. Those whose inventions are chosen then work with experts and professionals to turn their innovative ideas into real-life inventions to be showcased in Little Inventor exhibitions.

The Little Inventors project is an initiative led by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) in partnership with the Canadian Commission for UNESCO (CCUNESCO) and in collaboration with Let’s Talk Science.

You can check out the creations of these Little Inventors in the mechanical room right next to the Fabrik exhibition hall on the second floor.
