Meet our Magnificent Makers
Little Inventors wants children to open their eyes to the world of invention and creativity. But beyond the invention drawings, there is a unique opportunity for children and makers, designers and artists to come together and collaborate to bring children’s imagination to life.
By taking children’s ideas seriously and presenting them in a professional manner through collaboration with skilled makers, we will help showcase children’s original ideas, perspectives and voices.
We also want to challenge the skills and experience of adult makers, and encourage them to push beyond their own limits by engaging with the highly imaginative and unhindered minds of young children.Do you make things?
Join the fun!
I am passionate about creativity, imagination and the link between art and science. After a few years of experience in science education and animation, I now work as a science extensionist during the day, and I study a distance science journalism course in the evening. I love to be on the lookout for the latest scientific discoveries and I have a concern to convey this passion for science to the general public in my work. I draw, I do scientific comics, I write poetry and I make origami. I have a 4 year old boy with whom we transformed our kitchen into a lab / workshop :)
A vast and animated attraction showcasing Canada’s captivating vistas, landmarks and cityscapes in miniature scale, Little Canada aims to entertain and educate guests every tiny step of the way.

Freshly done with my mechanical engineering degree here in Montreal, I am intern at the Canadian Space Agency. I design an electro-mechanic tool for the robotics team for a future exploration deployment mission. Throughout many prototypes and challenges, my project is insane! I decided to participate in the Little Inventors project to share my passion for engineering and science.

Hello! I'm an animator based in Toronto, Ontario and I specialize in digital frame-by-frame animation. I work digitally so a majority of my works use dark lines and are coloured in a vector style, but sometimes I like to merge the flat look of digital art and the tactile nature of physical art into one piece.
I also do 3D animation once in a while and I mostly create 3D models.
