Kids Create Thingamajigs During Fun Summer Program

FORT WORTH -- School hasn't started yet but that doesn't mean these kids aren't using their brains. Wednesday the YMCA of Fort Worth hosted their first Thingamajig Invention Convention. Thanks to a STEM program, kids spent the summer break completing challenges and creating things like a robo-hand and toys.

"We've been thinking of ideas, writing it down on paper and seeing if it works," one student told NewsFix.

The summer program allows youth to utilize their strategic thinking and creative expression skills, creating the best future for generations to come.

If they ever are thought about cashing in on their creations, people from the United States Patent and Trademark Office were on hand to give some advice.

It's never too early to come up with your own Thingamajig!
