COVID-19 Policy

Health and Safety Guidance

After consulting with our affiliates, partners and, most importantly, Invention Convention families, we are thrilled to return to an in-person Raytheon Technologies Invention Convention U.S. Nationals at The Henry Ford in 2022.

We cannot wait to see our inventors and their inventions back on the floor of Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation alongside the greatest innovations in American history.

The health and well-being of our participants is our top priority, and the pandemic remains a moving target, so we will be constantly monitoring the situation, following CDC guidelines, conferring with local health officials and updating our plans for the event to maximize the safety of our student inventors and their families.

Accordingly, we will provide detailed plans and guidelines for U.S. Nationals in this space. If we’ve learned anything during this pandemic, it’s that the situation can change and change rapidly. So, as we get closer to the event dates, we will continue to update participants regarding the safety protocols to expect. Stay tuned here for more information.

Again, we can’t wait to see you back at The Henry Ford.
