What Is Inventors Day?
Inventors Day is a day set aside to honor all inventors who have changed the world. It’s also a great opportunity for people to learn more about them and their inventions. This day has been celebrated since 2006 when the National Inventors Hall of Fame first established it. The holiday had its origins in Germany, where it had been celebrated on October 16th as “Erfindersommer” or “inventor summer” for many years.
The History of Inventors Day
Inventors Day was first celebrated in 1977. It’s been recognized every year on September 27th as a way to honor the anniversary of Thomas Alva Edison receiving the first patent for an electric lamp. It’s been said that this invention changed the world forever. Thomas Alva Edison is just one of many incredible innovators, and we must take a moment to celebrate their accomplishments on Inventors Day. The first person who received a patent was Samuel Hopkins in 1790. He was issued a patent for producing potash with “wood ashes.” This is now known as the Leblanc process and resulted in changes to everyday items like soap and fabric dyes. The first American inventor was also granted a patent for his improvements on ropemaking equipment: Lewis Latimer. He patented this invention in 1881 and wrote about his life and work in his autobiography, “Life of an American Workman.” Other inventors we’ve all come across include Alexander Graham Bell, who patented the telephone (1876), George Washington Carver, who created 300 products from peanuts (1924), and even Christopher Columbus with his boat (1497).
When Is Inventors Day?

How Is Inventors Day Celebrated?
Inventors Day is a time to celebrate the achievements of those who have changed our lives with their inventions. The Intellectual Property Owners Association established inventors Day, and it takes place on March 31st each year. There are a lot of ways you can celebrate Inventors Day. One of the most popular traditions is to track down your favorite inventor and learn about their story. You can also try coming up with one or more inventions yourself, or you could even spend some time learning about the things that make your life easier (or more difficult). No matter how you choose to celebrate Inventors Day, it is probably a good idea to look at what we’ve done without inventors and ask yourself why we need them in the first place. Then think about all of the amazing things we could do with inventors and be amazed all over again!
