Kids Invent Stuff is the YouTube channel where 4-11 year olds have the chance to get their invention ideas built by engineers Ruth and Shawn.
The CREATE Education Project loaned them an Ultimaker S5, which they used to bring five separate kids’ invention ideas to life, with the aim of the project to communicate the fun, creative nature of science and engineering and demonstrate how accessible it is to everyone.
Ultimaker S5 and bringing inventions to life
The Ultimaker S5 was used within the inventions to be able to understand and enthuse about the process of seeing an invention brought to life, and the results are amazing!
The inventions have already had a total of 49,181 views on the Kids Invent Stuff YouTube channel (as of Feb .22) and can be seen for yourself using the links
Ruth and Shawn gave their workshop an upgrade and filmed the process of making it a brilliant space to build inventions. The Ultimaker S5 featured both as a tool to print useful accessories and an essential part of the workshop itself, as you can see here.
Ruth of Kids Invent Stuff says:
“The Ultimaker S5 has been such a brilliantly useful tool in our mission to bring to life kids’ invention ideas. It’s allowed us to demonstrate 3D printing as a powerful creative and engineering tool in bringing to life invention ideas in the real world!”
Jasmine, aged 10, had her idea brought to life and said:
“Thank you so much for making my idea. I loved seeing it made and firing out slime like a real superhero.”
