Invention Convention for Parents
Support Your Child's Invention Journey
Participating in Invention Convention involves the entire family. Encourage your child to note problems in their daily lives—a key step in the invention process. Once they start problem solving, help them research what already exists. This is a chance to share and learn new skills with your young inventor as they create and build a prototype.
