Wouldn't it be cool if... | Young inventors' contest | Time Warner
Wouldn't it be cool if... there was a website where kids could go to share their ideas for inventions that could change their community or even the world? Well, now there is! From now through March 28th, kids between the ages of 10 and 15 years can visit wouldntitbecoolif.com to submit their crazy-cool ideas for making the world a better place.
Four finalists will get to pitch their ideas to artist will.i.am, inventor Dean Kamen and other judges who will choose one grand prize winner to work with Farenheit 212, a leading innovation firm, to develop their idea!
You can enter by yourself or as a team with a limit of 3 members. You must have your parent or legal guardian's permission to participate. The public gets to vote through April 3rd!
Each entry must consist of the following:
- a completed Contest registration form;
- an essay of no more than fifteen hundred (1500) characters describing your idea powered by math or science to make the world "more awesome" including what it does, who you want to use it, and how you thought of it (" Essay #1 ");
- an original drawing showing your idea (" Drawing "); and
- an essay of no more than fifteen hundred (1500) characters describing what math and science tools you need to make your idea work (" Essay #2 ").
What's your favorite invention: electricity? the zipper? cell phones? Did you know that Thomas Jefferson invented the swivel chair? And that Abraham Lincoln was the only US President to hold a patent? I'm working on my own super-secret First Dog invention!
You could be next! Put your thinking cap on and get busy!
