August is National Inventors’ Month (R), a program created in 1995 by the United Inventors Association of the USA (UIA-USA) (http://www.uiausa.org/), the Academy of Applied Science (http://www.aas-world.org/), and Inventors’ Digest (http://www.inventorsdigest.com/) in order to teach kids about inventing and to help those who have ideas for new products understand the process of new product development and find ethical, honest companies and people with whom to deal. Inventors’ Digest is America’s leading inventors’ magazine. Their website includes archives from the magazine as well as resources for inventors, including tips for avoiding invention scams (http://www.inventorsdigest.com/clubhouse/avoidscam.html).
