Invention Sites Partner to Form Resource Network
PatentCafe and Kids Invent! have joined forces to create an interactive Kids' Invention Network. Together, the two portals provide over 200 interactive invention pages, including more than 1,000 kid-safe links to science and invention resources.
The network centers on the kids' patent site of PatentCafe.com at http://Kids.PatentCafe.com and features the Invention Engine, where kids can keep an online workbook of their invention development - starting with identifying a problem and ending with a complete business plan for marketing their invention. The Kid's PatentCafe site also features the Inventioneers, a club for young inventors where kids compete for a $5,000 U.S. patent application with their inventions.
