Young Inventors Challenge Autumn 2009 Leeds Library and Information Service is working on new project with students at Horsforth High Shool.

Young Inventors workshops at Horsforth library:

· Intro to the weird and wonderful world of patents – Find out how patents work, look at the good and the bad, those that made it and those that didn’t and more importantly how to protect your ideas.
·Applying for a patent – learn about the strange language of patents and how craftily changing a few words can keep your competitors away.
·Patent searching – Is your invention as new as you think.
·Choosing a name – what should you call your invention? Have a look at some of the names other people have use for their products. Become creative by designing your own logo.
·Market Research – build up a market profile asking who, where, and how?
·Presenting your product – show the group your ideas and explain why you think people will be rushing to buy it.
