The 2012 Spark!Lab Plastic Bag Invention Contest is Now Open!

The Spark!Lab Invention Contest is simple: gather some used plastic bags, use them to create a useful or whimsical invention, snap a photo and email it to us (along with your name, age, and hometown) to sparklab@si.edu before July 20th. If you are under 13, you must have parental permission to submit your photo.

Get creative! Your invention doesn’t need to be complicated at all. In fact, some of the best inventions start from a very simple idea or solution to a problem. Check out some of these examples to help you start!
