Inventors' Resources


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.

Inventors' Resources

Inventor’s Journal

The YIP Inventor’s Journal provides space for you to journal, brainstorm, and document your invention journey. Your teacher may choose to lead 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.

You may request a printed journal on our Inventor Sign-Up page.

Resources for Inventors

The YIP staff will continually add items to this page to help you with developing your invention, presenting your project, competing, and learning what other inventors are doing.

You can also contact us to subscribe to our newsletter, The Inventor, and receive updates about upcoming webinars, events, and programs. Please ask your parent or guardian for permission to subscribe.
