About the event
Looking for fun and educational activities to keep the little ones busy and engaged? These interactive project sheets can help kids think like an inventor by noticing details, questioning everything, and dreaming up new ideas.
For more fun activities, check out This Book Thinks You’re an Inventor by Jon Milton, illustrated by Harriot Russell.
Through fun activities and Harriet Russell’s hilarious illustrations, This Book Thinks You’re an Inventor encourages readers to engage with new ideas by creatively experimenting and investigating for themselves.
The book explores six subjects: engineering household objects, transportation, flight, AI and robots, construction, and the future of science. Each spread centers on an open-ended question or activity, with space on the page for the child to write, draw, or interact with the book. At the end, there are paper-based tinkering activities and experiments for children.
Hand-drawn illustrations and a collage-style use of photographs give the book a fresh, creative, and fun approach that makes the scientific content appealing for children.
