IP@School - 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. 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.
