The future of scientific advancement depends on today’s kids becoming tomorrow's change-makers. By using the same techniques employed by adult inventors—challenge-based innovation and collaborative problem solving—the Inventor’s Lab Building Kit gives little scientists the right sized tools to start inventing and designing products all on their own. If all of that sounds a little heavy, don’t worry. Contemporary “maker culture” is all about DIY exploration and life hacks—those little tips and tricks for repurposing household items and creating an ah-ha moment that makes everyday tasks a little bit easier.


The kit comes with three different types of parts that can be used in countless combinations to design tools, vehicles, or any other real-life products that kids can dream up. Once their designs are ready, little innovators can join the online Innovation Lab Forum and share their work with other inventors, building critical STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) skills and the habits of collaborative online innovation.

It's looking increasingly inevitable that electric vehicles (EVs for short) will be the cars of the future. More specifically, battery electric vehicles (or BEVs)—which are powered entirely by rechargeable chemical cells—are starting to become practical. Many major auto manufacturers have BEVs in development, and a few already have BEVs on the road today. The challenge in making BEVs a viable transportation solution is the battery. Batteries must be easy to recharge, able to hold enough charge to drive long distances, and more efficient than gasoline engines. Scientists and engineers around the world are tackling this battery challenge, and major progress is being made.
