IP Outreach: Learn from the Past, Create the Future: Inventions and Patents
IP Outreach: Learn from the Past, Create the Future: Inventions and Patents: "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. It responds to the demand from Member States for practical and detailed curriculum materials on IP, suitable for use in classrooms around the world.
Combining fun with facts, and packed with illustrations, the publication takes its young readers on a colorful journey through the world of inventions and patents. Simple explanations of how patents work, why we need them, and how they contribute to scientific and technological progress, are interspersed with the stories behind successful inventions. Inventor Profiles are drawn from around the world, and teachers are encouraged to supplement these by getting their students to research inventions from their home country."
