Invention Convention for Educators

Tap into students’ innate desires and abilities to identify problems and create meaningful solutions.

Invention Comes to Your Classroom

Activate Students’ Creativity and Critical Thinking

The Invention Convention program uses a free, flexible and hands-on curriculum to activate invention education in classrooms and at local, state and national showcase events. Students learn to think critically by identifying problems in their world. They discover the impact of inventions in their lives. And they have the opportunity to apply STEM, invention and entrepreneurial skills to build real-world solutions.
