National Inventors’ Day

February 11, 2023 All day

National Inventors’ Day is an official holiday in the United States that is celebrated on February 11th every year.

This day is dedicated to honoring the contributions and achievements of inventors throughout history, and to inspire and encourage future generations of inventors.

The date of February 11th was chosen to coincide with the birthday of Thomas Edison, one of the most famous and prolific inventors in history. Edison is credited with inventing the first commercially practical incandescent light bulb, the phonograph, and numerous other devices that have had a major impact on modern life.

National Inventors’ Day was first proclaimed by the United States Congress in 1983, and has since been celebrated every year with events and activities that highlight the importance of innovation and creativity.

To celebrate National Inventors’ Day, people may attend events or activities that promote innovation and creativity, learn about the history of invention and the achievements of inventors, or even take part in their own inventive activities. This can include brainstorming new ideas, experimenting with new technologies, or developing new products or services.

Happy National Inventors’ Day!
