Patents for 8 to 13 Year-Olds
"Inventions and Patents" is the first publication in WIPO’s new Learn from the Past, Create the Future series, created for school children as future innovators. Geared towards students from 8 to 13 years old, the publication takes the form of a self-contained work-book, which can be photocopied for classroom use. It teaches theory through practice, and IP concepts through case-studies. To play the PCT Detective game, for example, students learn to search patent applications in WIPO’s online PCT database.
