On May 2, 2012, Steve Jobs, an innovator who hardly needs an introduction, joined the ranks of Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell in the National Inventor’s Hall of Fame. His inductee comrades were such distinguished inventors as Dennis Gabor, inventor of electron holography, C. Kumar N. Patel, inventor of the carbon dioxide laser, and Maria Telkes, inventor of solar thermal storage systems, among others.
May is the perfect month to celebrate famous inventors and the inventions they developed to make our lives safer, easier, healthier, or just way cooler. In fact, just last year the U.S. Senate adopted a resolution to ensure Americans celebrate the wonderful innovations in their lives every May.
Inventors Digest Magazine is an original founder of National Inventors Month, traditionally celebrated in August. The longest-running publication for independent inventors has worked behind the scenes since last year to move National Inventors Month to May.
The month of May better aligns National Inventors Month with the K-12 academic calendar, allowing more youth to discover the profound contributions inventors have made—and continue to make—to society, said Inventors Digest Content Director Mike Drummond.
