Inspiring and guiding the next generation of builders

We need a few smart kids . . .

. . . to help save the world from sloppy scoundrels who make big messes and repugnant rascals who are spoiling all the fun. Are you a boy, a girl or an intelligent extra-terrestrial life-form between the ages of 8 and 13 (earth years)?

Join our crew of artists and builders

We're training the next generation of artists and builders to lead the way in solving epic problems. Team up with our crew and build cool toys and machines, your own websites and computer games, and awesome robots.

Log in and start building

Work from home in weekly Webcast Meetings, where you'll collaborate with fellow builders from around the world and get live help with your projects from engineering, computer science and art specialists from Cornell, MIT, Mass Art and other leading universities.

Be a building hero!

You’ll have plenty of cool Missions to choose from - each with a very important problem to solve. You and your teammates must apply art and technology in designing, building and presenting your solutions.

We've got the tools . . .
you bring the talent!

Build-It-Yourself members can take advantage of our exclusive library of handy modular building blocks to help you build complex artwork, toys, machines, robots, software programs and games quickly.

It's Show & Tell Day - 24/7

BIY builders get full access to Invention Universe – our virtual community where you can rule your own planet, show off all the cool stuff you’ve built and interact with other master builders.
