This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic.

About About WikiProject Invention[edit]


Goals of this project are to provide improved coverage on subjects related to invention, by creating, expanding, and maintaining articles on people, inventions, and ideas relevant to the principles of invention and inventive thinking.

  1. Article coordination, organization and collaborations
  2. Article creation, expansion and maintenance
  3. Article categorization
  4. Maintaining objectivity and neutral point-of-view in invention-related articles


This project focuses on all pages related to Invention, its history, branches, and people involved. These should all be included in the Category:Inventions or one of its subcategories. We hope to provide detailed and organized coverage of the subject.


Editing in accordance with Wikipedia's Manual of Style and coordinating the style of new articles.
