Connecting students with intellectual property

Welcome to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), America’s “Innovation Agency.” Here, you can explore stories of innovators and their creations, and find out how to unlock the inventor and creator in you. An innovator is someone who makes new things. If you’ve ever created something new from an idea you had, you were innovating! You’ll also learn how to protect and share your creative work. Anyone can be an inventor, and no matter where you are on your innovation journey, we’re here to help.
