Today’s science fairs are filled with complex, high technology exhibits that were never before possible to build from home. The power of the internet and the complex tools available to young people today makes anything possible.

How To Create Great Invention Ideas For Kids!

One great invention idea for kids and science fairs that I built a few years ago as a Kickstarter project can be seen in this video. The Sonic Levitation Machine is a fascinating invention idea that levitates objects with the power of sound. It is a great example of how you can sell your Inventions To Kid’s for science fairs and school projects.

Sonic Levitation Machine Was Crowdfunded Via Kickstarter

The original Sonic Levitation Machine was an invention that started out as a Kickstarter Project and went on to earn $39,607.00! To my surprise, this idea has been very popular as a science project for kids. The lesson in this story is that you never know who is going to be interested in your invention ideas until you start selling them. Kids make up a huge sector of potential customers as do schools, universities, tech companies and anyone else interested in science.

This Kickstarter Project was just the start of this fun and educational invention and it has been selling on the Sonic Levitation Website ever since. The original project was pretty simple in design with a small circuit board, power supply, ultrasonic transducer and other components packaged as a fairly simple science kit.
